JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – A Jacksonville shopkeeper allegedly chased down and shot a customer he wrongly believed stole a DVD.
David Nathaniel Hamilton Jr. was arrested on aggravated assault charges after the Sunday night shooting.
A witness told police the victim showed Hamilton his pockets after he was accused of shoplifting, but that didn't convince him.
The Florida Times-Union reported Hamilton followed the customer out of the store and shot him in the arm with a .38-caliber revolver.
It could not immediately be determined if Hamilton had an attorney. Jail records show he remained in custody Monday, with bail set at $250,000.
