Senior citizen shoots would-be robbers at Ocala Internet cafe

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

An elderly man foiled an armed robbery attempt in Florida by pulling out his own gun and shooting the would-be bandits.

A surveillance camera caught 71-year-old Samuel Williams jump out of his seat and head toward the two armed men.

The men were trying to rob an Internet cafe in Ocala.

One suspect was shot in the arm -- the other one in the buttocks and right hip.

Both 19-year-olds were later arrested and taken to a hospital. The men have been charged with armed robbery.

Williams has a license to carry a concealed weapon and does not face any charges.
