Pensacola Police say a convenience store clerk managed to wound a robbery suspect before the suspect ran out of the store.
It happened around 2:30 Saturday morning at the Beacon Store on West Cervantes Street.
Police say the suspect, 24-year-old was wearing camouflage, a hat and a bandana over his face when he entered the store.
He was armed with what appeared to be a handgun.
He left the store with cash and 10 cartons of cigarettes. But, before he exited the door, 20-year-old Abed Alslaq pulled his own gun and shot the suspect on his way out before calling the police.
Officer Patrick Kelly and his K-9 were called in to track the suspect. Blackmon was taken into custody in the 600 block of North E Street and taken to the hospital for treatment.
Blackmon is charged with armed robbery, grand theft, wearing a mask or hood during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and resisting arrest without violence.
Police say Blackmon claims the firearm he used in the holdup was a fake.
No charges have been filed against Alslaq.
