Armed Robber Barricades Himself Inside EZ Mart

Friday, police say a man took a gun into EZ Mart, fired two shots, demanded cash then barricaded himself inside.  It happened at the M-66 and US-10 in Sears in Osceola County. 

They were able to call the armed man and convince him to surrender.  Thankfully, no one was hurt.

The man is now in the Osceola County Jail but there are still questions as to why someone would rob a store, and not try to leave.

9 and 10's Ann Marie LaFlamme and photojournalists Joel Deaner and Jeff Blevins were on the scene and they have more.
