Store clerk in Fla. shoots, kills would-be robber

(AP)  TAMPA, Fla. — Sheriff’s deputies in southwest Florida say a convenience store manager shot a robber in the leg before he scooped up her 1-year-old child and tried to carry her out.

Thirty-two-year-old 32-year-old Daniel Ramont Hernandez died at a hospital after the Tuesday afternoon shooting in Naples.

The Collier County sheriff’s report released Wednesday said 22-year-old manager Elizabeth Easterly shot the man after he demanded money and came around to her side of the counter.

The report says after he was wounded, the man tried to carry the stroller with infant out of the store with him. He was tackled by another man outside the store and held for deputies.

Family members said earlier they believed Easterly shot the man after he tried to escape with the child.
