Florence police are investigating an attempted robbery which investigators say was thwarted when another employee pulled a gun on the offender.
Police say they received a call of shots being fired at the Quick Stop convenience store after noon Friday. Officers say the clerk told them a male entered the store and attempted to take money from the cash register. The clerk told police he thought the robber was armed.
