A trucker was uninjured Tuesday morning after defending himself against an attacker at a gas station in Florida.
The incident happened at around 2:15 a.m. in Northeast Miami-Dade, Florida.
Miami-Dade Police say that the trucker was standing outside his rig speaking to someone at a 7-eleven at 1000 Northeast 215th Street when a man suddenly came up and attacked him. Luckily, the truck driver was armed and was able to pull out his gun, opening fire on the assailant, who promptly fled to the 7-eleven building to find help.

The attacker was transported to a nearby hospital for bullet wounds in his stomach and back, but none were thought to be life-threatening, and the man was last listed as being in ‘stable condition,’ reported WSVN News Miami.
Police then detained and interviewed the trucker but say that it appears that he acted in self defense and will likely not face any criminal charges.
