Two men who attempted to hold up an Internet cafe were shot and
injured by a patron of the business Friday night, according to the
Marion County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff's officials said
they got a call at 9:54 p.m. about an armed robbery at Palms Internet
Cafe, 8444 SW State Road 200. When deputies arrived at the scene,
patrons outside the business told them that two men in masks — one armed
with a baseball bat and the other with a handgun — had barged into the
business. The robbers told the approximately 30 patrons to get on the
floor, and they demanded money.Officials
said one of the patrons, Samuel Williams, drew his own handgun and shot
at the robbers, according to sheriff's officials.Both robbers began
running toward the front door, and the patron fired several more shots
as they fled.
The two men got into a car parked nearby and fled.
