Florida elderly man stops armed robbery

OCALA, Fla. -- An elderly Florida man became a hero after he stopped an armed robbery.

Surveillance video showed two men, one armed with a gun and the other with a baseball bat trying to rob an internet cafe.

It happened last week Friday. Samuel Williams, 71, jumped into action. He pulled out a gun and started firing.

Both 19-year-old suspects were shot and taken to a hospital in Gainesville.

Williams does have a license to carry a gun and does not face any charges.
