ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A Tampa Bay area man faces charges after authorities say he shot and wounded another man during an argument at a pizza restaurant.
St. Petersburg police say 52-year-old Michael Jock was waiting in line at a Little Caesars on Sunday when another customer, 49-year-old Randall White, began complaining about the slow service. The men exchanged words, which turned into a shoving match.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that Jock pulled a revolver and shot White in the lower torso. The two struggled and White was shot a second time.
Jock, who has a concealed weapons permit, told officers he feared for his life and was justified under Florida's "stand your ground" law.
The officers charged Jock with aggravated battery with a weapon and shooting within a building. He was later released on $20,000 bail.
