Police: Store owner fatally shot during robbery attempt in Tampa

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A convenience store owner who survived a violent armed robbery in 2011 was shot and killed during a robbery Sunday in Tampa, police said.

After receiving a 911 call about a robbery in progress, Tampa police responded to 2802 N. 29th Street and found the body of a man later identified as Mohamoud Ibrahim, 60.

Detectives say Ibrahim was killed in an apparent robbery attempt. An investigation into his death is underway and no arrests have been made at this time.
