Caroline County officials say a customer who struck a gun-toting man on the head with two beer bottles foiled a robbery at a truck stop off Interstate 95.
Sheriff's officials say the would-be robber brandished a gun at the clerk Saturday night at Mr. Fuel and demanded money, then pointed the weapon at several store customers. One customer walked to the rear of the store, got two beer bottles and struck the suspect in the back of the head.
The customer struggled with the gunman, who in turn shot him several times. The customer didn't suffer life-threatening injuries.
Sheriff's officials say the gunman hasn't been arrested.
A telephone message left Tuesday for Gary Poland, the general manager of Mr. Fuel, wasn't immediately returned.
