An armed man robbed a 7-Eleven early Sunday not long after botching a robbery attempt at another 7-Eleven 2 miles away on the same road, the Kissimmee Police Department said.
The man walked into the 7-Eleven at North John Young Parkway and asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes.
“When the clerk turned around, the suspect went behind the counter and pointed a black gun at the clerk,” said Stacie Miller, a police spokeswoman. “The clerk ran into the office and the suspect fled the scene.”
After spooking the clerk at the first 7-Eleven, the man then drove 2 miles south to try again at another 7-Eleven on South John Young Parkway.
“The suspect pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money,” Miller said. “The suspect fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.”
Neither clerk was injured.
The robber is described as a Hispanic man about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a tattooed face. He was wearing a red hoodie and khaki pants.Sun, 14 Feb 2016 17:02:10 -0500
The day after a strong performance in the latest Republican presidential debate, Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio told more than 2,000 supporters that the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has permanently changed the race for the White House.
Rubio, speaking at Easley High School, praised Scalia, who passed Saturday at the age of 79.
“We commend his soul to God, we pray for his family, and now we pray for the country,” Rubio said. “Because that vacancy has to be filled, and it will be filled by the next president. Not by this one.”
There is no way, Rubio said, the Senate should confirm anybody President Barack Obama tries to appoint in his final year in office.
Earlier Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Rubio deflected questions from host Chuck Todd about whether it was the Senate’s obligation to vote on Obama’s nominee.
“We will go through the motions but not while Barack Obama is in White House,” Rubio said.
Rubio also said there is precedent for the president not to nominate, and the Senate not to act, on Supreme Court justices in an election year.
“You stop the advise and consent process,” Rubio said.
The bottom line, he said, is “the balance of the court is at stake. We’re not moving forward on it.”
It’s something on which Rubio and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz agree. Cruz likewise told Todd, “There is a long tradition you don’t do this in an election year. We ought to make the 2016 election a referendum on the Supreme Court.”
But U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in a statement on Facebook, slammed Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, for their immediate refusal to consider a vote.

“Senator McConnell is right that the American people should have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court justice. In fact, they did — when President Obama won the 2012 election by five million votes.
Article II Section 2 of the Constitution says the President of the United States nominates justices to the Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate. I can’t find a clause that says “…except when there’s a year left in the term of a Democratic President.”
Senate Republicans took an oath just like Senate Democrats did. Abandoning the duties they swore to uphold would threaten both the Constitution and our democracy itself. It would also prove that all the Republican talk about loving the Constitution is just that — empty talk.”
