    >>So little information. You can’t even tell us what he was armed with?

    No, because the ECSO did not release that information.

    One person in the store with a concealed weapons permit and a sidearm could have ended his career quick, fast, and in a hurry.

    I’ve been to that location several times and never felt unsafe. The problem is that these thugs would rather rob than get a job. They should have better security there as it has been robbed quite a bit.

    I’ve wondered why they stuck a store right there. Hasn’t that store been robbed a few times now? It’s tucked back in the trees, poor lighting, never has looked safe to me.
