Trucker Fends Off Attack At Convenience Store By Shooting Attacker Multiple Times
Miami Dade County, Florida – The question is often asked of gun owners if they could pull the trigger and actually shoot someone if matters ever came to that. Well, a truck driver who was attacked at a 7-Eleven convenience store answered this question when he shot his attacker twice in self-defense police say.
