Shotgun Defense at Sam's Discount
Police said Floyd Harvell, 17, and Keenan Felton, 19, went into Sam's Discount Food Store in Orange County at about noon and demanded money. One of the teens distracted store owner Sung Kim and the other went behind him and put a gun to the store owner's head, police said. As the men turned to leave, Kim pulled out a shotgun and opened fire on them. Both were hit by gunfire, according to the report. Both of the teens were treated and transported to jail. They face armed robbery, grand theft and aggravated assault with a firearm charges.
Kim will not likely face charges in connection with the incident.
"They recently passed a new law but an investigation will still have to ensue to determine what happened in this and take it from there," Orange County Sheriff's spokeswoman Barbara Miller said. "But, normally, if the state attorney's office felt the store owner acted appropriately, then no (charges)."
Thank you for your service Mr. Kim. Next time use buckshot.
