By BBN Staff: A Ladyville grocer shot a man who was trying to escape without paying for a bottle of rum on Wednesday night.
Reports say that at about 8:10 p.m. Zhufeng Luo, owner of HomeEver store at Mile 13 on the Philip Goldson Highway, was alerted by his wife of a man who did not pay for a bottle of rum and was escaping with it.
Luo reportedly went out of the shop armed with his licensed 9 millimeter Glock pistol demanding payment. The man identified as 19-year-old Roberto Carlos Vasquez punched Luo and tried to take away his gun. In the subsequent struggle, Luo shot Vasquez in the leg.
Vasquez was hospitalized and is reportedly in stable condition.
Police found two expended shells in the area.
