A newspaper carrier for the Fort Pierce Tribune in Florida is in stable condition after being shot yesterday morning after an attempted robbery.
The man demanded money and shot Daniel Destefano, 32, during his route. Destefano returned fire — he has a concealed weapon permit for his .357 magnum pistol — but was unsure if he hit his assailant. Destefano was reportedly shot in the spleen and leg.
He has been working for Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers since November. His route takes him through downtown Fort Pierce.
