Teen Robber Shot in Head Fleeing Jewelry Store Owner

Teen Robber Shot in Head Fleeing Jewelry Store Owner

A Florida teen was shot in the head by a jewelry store owner following a robbery at the business. The teen, who is a suspect in the case, remains in grave condition, reported, citing the Martin County Sheriff’s office. His name is being withheld because he is a minor.

On Thursday morning, investigators said the teen entered the shop and asked to see gold rings and a chain. Then he put on three gold rings, each costing at least $850. He was told he couldn’t try them all on at once, so he threatened to kill one of the store owners, investigators said.

Still wearing the rings, the teen pushed an employee out of the way and ran out of the store. Then he got into the passenger’s side of an SUV. Surveillance video shows the other store owner, 57-year-old Michael Dacey, fire a shot at the vehicle, which hit the suspect in the head. Officials said the teenager was rushed to the hospital where he remains in critical condition. Dacey is not expected to be charged.   [Source: WFLA News8]
