From Lehigh Acres, Florida (September 14, 2015):

. . . Owner Pierre Phurcien said it was his first time being robbed, and when he realized what was happening he made a split-second decision that ultimately saved his life. . . .

“He came right here, and he pulled a gun and said give me the money,” Phurcien said. “Then I pulled my gun, and I asked him what kind of money, then he starts to run away.”

Surveillance video shows the suspect taking off, with Phurcien right on his heels.

“It was nothing for me because I prepare for that,” he said. “And I’ll always use my good sense. So I wasn’t scared.”. . . .

Phurcien said he’s taken his concealed weapon with him everywhere for the last eight years.

“All the time. All the time. That’s my best friend,” he said. “Lehigh is getting bad so to do business here you have to have security. They better stop because the next person is not going to get out alive.” . . .
