We’ll keep these short today. 24-year-old Joel Alberto Torres is dead.
Joel, in need of funds, decided that robbing Riverview, Florida’s Beverage Castle was the way to get them.
Joel, armed and masked, entered the store and attempted to rob the owners.
Unfortunately for Joel, his intended victims had no intention of rolling over and playing dead until he shot them. One of the two, as yet unnamed by authorities, drew his licensed concealed handgun and shot Joel.
I’m sure that the two gentlemen who ended their day staring down the barrel of a gun in the hands of their attacker are very glad that they had the means to resist the armed intrusion.
