If you owned a gas station and people were constantly stealing from you there's a chance you would get tired of it after awhile. It seems that may have been the case for a business owner in Florida when a guy enters his store and runs out with three 18-packs of Natural Ice beer.

22-year-old Mehedeun Hasan of Lakeland can be seen running to the office for his gun and his father who is a co-owner chases after the beer-runner. Surveillance video shows Hasan fumbling the gun as he runs out the door and points it at 43-year-old Rennie Defoe, Jr. who is fleeing in his 2005 Toyota Camry. Although it is difficult to tell when Hasan fires, at some point during the escape Defoe is struck in the arm and chest.

The value of the beer Defoe stole is about $36. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said Defoe was recently released from prison and ended up crashing his vehicle less than a mile away from the gas station. He was taken to Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center where he remains listed in critical condition.
Hasan has no criminal history but has been charged with attempted murder among other charges. Defoe's criminal history ranges from robbery to domestic battery and drug possession.
