A man armed with a knife entered Justice Coins in New Port Richey, Florida.
and stabbed owner Wayne Justice while attempting to rob the store.
Despite his wounds, Justice was able to retrieve a firearm and shoot the attacker.
The criminal fled, but collapsed just outside the store and later died
after being taken to a local hospital.
Pasco County Sheriff’s Office officials made clear that they do not
expect Justice to face charges and indicated that the store owner is
a Right-to-Carry license holder. Law enforcement officials also noted
that the deceased robber had been arrested for robbery in 2007,
was on felony probation and had a warrant out for his arrest at the time of his death.
