The two teens fatally shot and robbed a man at the 7-Eleven convenience store at 398 Marigold Ave. in Poinciana. The victim and the two teens met for a bag of marijuana.

“I’m so sick of hearing that drugs aren’t dangerous. We have a young man who’s dead today, because he came to a gas station to sell drugs to these two suspects, who ripped him off, then shot and killed him,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said.
