ENGLEWOOD, Fla.- A man carrying a short-barreled shotgun entered the Barracuda Bill's Mobil convenience store, located at 8675 Placida Road, on Tuesday night and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
At about 10:30 p.m., a white male wearing a black full-face motorcycle helmet over another type of white face mask entered the store brandishing a short-barreled shotgun. The man demanded that the clerk fill a small backpack with cash. The clerk complied and the man fled the store.
