SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — The man accused of robbing and shooting a clerk at the Family Diskount Food Store on Tuesday night has been arrested, a source said.

Jean Andris, 34, of Fort Myers, is facing charges of robbery, aggravated battery and carrying a concealed weapon, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred at 8 p.m. at the Family Discount on 7174 Cypress Drive, deputies said. The victim was shot in the shoulder and taken to the hospital.

Andris had been at the store earlier but was asked to leave for drinking alcohol in the parking lot and hindering customers, the sheriff’s office said. He allegedly returned, approached a clerk as if to purchase more alcohol, displayed the gun and demanded money from the register.

Two other clerks saw what happened and tried to take the gun away from Andris, according to the sheriff’s office. The gun went off as they struggled and a bullet struck one of the clerks, the sheriff’s office said.

He will appear in court Thursday at the Lee County Courthouse. A time is not known.

No further information was immediately available.
