    Two suspects seen taking six pairs of Nikes from a Colonial Drive shoe store Sunday afternoon fled in a vehicle but were arrested shortly thereafter, thanks to a cell-phone call from a citizen who followed them in her car.

    During the subsequent arrest, in which the suspects were ordered to the ground at gunpoint, a sheriff deputy's shotgun accidentally discharged, with one of the suspects slightly wounded from a pellet or pellets hitting him in the cheek, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office report.

    The manager of the Shoe Carnival Store at 7649 W. Colonial Drive would not comment on the incident, other than to say it had been a citizen, rather than a store employee, who followed the suspects and called in the report.

    The injured suspect was taken to the Health Central hospital in Ocoee where he was treated for his injury.

    Don't steal, you will be less likely to be shot. Lesson learned.

    I like how it "accidentally discharged". Someone's finger was a little to heavy in the wrong spot if you ask me.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    If only it were that easy...the guy will probably get paid off by the city, all charges will be dropped, and the city will probably have to apologize...not such a great way to 'teach' a lesson, IMO.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
