Cleanup in Aisle 5

Attempted robbery in Pembroke Pines lands suspect in hospital -- South Florida One guy is in the hospital (awaiting jail) and another is in jail.
An armed robbery suspect is in the hospital after a convenience store clerk shot him in self-defense earlier today, police said.

Bruce Flanders, 54, fired at the suspect after the alleged robber and another male walked into the Super Stop Food Store at 6460 Pines Blvd. at around 12:30 p.m., with a shotgun and demanded cash, said Sgt. John Jacob. The 21-year-old armed suspect had racked the shotgun before the men demanded money and pointed the weapon at Flanders after the store clerk showed his gun, Jacob said.
Self-defense is a human right, and it works. Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0
