An armed robber entered the Chevron station on South Cocoa Boulevard in Cocoa, Fla. and attempted to rob the store. Owner Sowann Suy responded to the criminal’s demands by retrieving a gun, which caused the robber to flee.
The robber was lucky to escape harm. Nine months earlier Suy shot a robber in the stomach during a robbery attempt, which earned him a spot in the Armed Citizen section of the NRA-ILA website.
