JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —
We've learned the identity of the man shot and killed while he was trying to rob a Dollar General Monday night.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says a customer at the store on Dunn Avenue shot 22 year-old Rakeem Odoms three times when Odoms refused to hand over his gun.
Odom's partner, 19 year-old Aundre Campbell, fled the scene and has since been caught by police.
He faces a felony murder charge for Odom's death because it happened while he was committing a crime.
The 57-year-old grandfather who shot Odoms was doing some late-night shopping at the Dollar General store on Dunn Avenue when all of the sudden, two men stormed in and tried robbing it.
The shopper has a concealed weapons permit, and Lt. Rob Schoonover with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says the man wasted no time springing into action.
"There was a citizen who had a concealed firearms permit that was inside the store as a customer," says Lt. Schoonover. "He fired at the suspect, striking him and killing him."
Police have not released the name of the shooter and, as of right now, he is not facing charges.
