Teen With Fake Gun Shot Trying To Mug Concealed Carrier With Real Gun

After a nice meal at the Shell on Fowler Avenue, a couple were leaving when two teenagers emerged from the bushes brandishing what was thought to be an actual gun. The two teens – identified now as Reginald Smith and Jeremiah Walker – demanded the couple’s money and cell phones.

According to Fox 13, the couple surrendered over their money and cell phones without any struggle.

As the woman began to flee back towards the restaurant, one of the teens purportedly pointed the gun in her direction. That’s when the concealed carrier drew his firearm and fired. That bullet hit Smith in the shin.

The teens, holding a fake gun and realizing they didn’t have a leg to stand on, immediately attempted to flee. That is when Smith realized he was hit. That didn’t stop Reginald Walker from abandoning his comrade, leaving Smith alone.

“Our suspect who was shot was shot in the left shin and he will be okay. He is expected to recover,” said Tampa Police Lt. Michael Stout in an official statement.

Both the money and cell phones were successfully recovered because both bandits dropped what they were holding when they went to flee.

Police have acknowledged that the gun they were using was a fake plastic replica with the orange safety removed – truly a dangerous move.
