The owner of a Lakeland, FLA gas station has been arrested for shooting a man who was allegedly trying to steal beer.
Police say the victim tried to leave the store with three cases of beer worth $36. They say Mehedeun Hasan, the co-owner of the store, shot the man with a 9mm handgun as he was trying to leave in his car. The victim was hospitalized in critical condition.
Police say deadly force is only allowed when someone's life is threatened, which wasn't the case here.
