Clerk fights back against robbers

A clerk at a Jacksonville service station shot a robber Tuesday morning, but couldn’t stop the robbery, police said.

Two men came into the Broward BP at 1188 Broward Road about 10:30 a.m. While one pointed a gun, the other jumped the counter and began struggling with the clerk, said Sgt. Bill Vanaman of Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

The clerk had his own gun and shot the man struggling with him, but then he was then disarmed, Vanaman said. The robbers then took the store’s money and left in an off-white four-door Saturn, police said.
