St. Petersburg, Florida -- Police are searching for an armed robbery suspect after an incident at the 7-Eleven on 34 Street North.
According to reports, the unknown suspect walked into the store and went to the back to get a cup of coffee. He then waited for the clerk, threw the coffee on him and reached into the register.
The suspect was also reportedly armed with a knife. Then, in an attempt to stop the man, the clerk pulled out a concealed gun- causing him to run.
The clerk says he later lost his job because 7-Eleven policy prohibits clerks from carrying weapons.
