Good: Store Manager Fights Back - Pembroke Pines, FL
Pembroke Pines store manager shoots armed robbers - Breaking News - MiamiHerald.com
Nice outcome. Would be nice to see the video from the store's camera.
A store manager behind the counter of a Pembroke Pines convenience store turned the tables on a pair of armed robbers Monday night when he pulled out a gun and shot them, police said.
The shooting happened about 7:40 p.m., when Joshua Hammond and Yacov Sims walked into the Stop-N-Go, 7781 Johnson St., and ordered customers to the ground, according to Pembroke Pines police spokesman Sgt. Bryan Davis.
Davis said Hammond, 20, jumped over the counter and demanded money from the register while Sims, 18, stood by with a revolver in his hand.
Hammond stuffed cash from the register into his pockets and then told Shedahe Abdel, the store manager, to open the safe.
When Sims walked up to Abdel and pointed his handgun at him, Abdel grabbed his own handgun from his waistband and shot Hammond in the leg.
Abdel then fired several rounds at Sims, striking him once in the arm.
Abdel was not injured.
Sims fled the scene in a black 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix, possibly driven by another suspect.
Hammond was left behind and was arrested by Pembroke Pines police.
About an hour later, Sims arrived at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, transported by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, with a gunshot wound to his arm.
Davis said store surveillance cameras captured the incident on video.
