OCALA, Fla., July 18 (UPI) -- Two teenagers armed with a handgun and a baseball bat were shot and injured by a 71-year-old man during the attempted robbery of an Internet cafe in Ocala, Fla.

Davis Dawkins, 19, and Duwayne Henderson, 19, were arrested on charges of attempted armed robbery with a firearm and felony criminal mischief for attempting to rob an Internet cafe Friday, ABC News reported. Samuel Williams thwarted the robbery, pulling out a .380-caliber handgun and shooting at Dawkins and Henderson, forcing them to flee.

Dawkins and Henderson were arrested hours after the incident. Dawkins posted an $11,000 bond and was released from jail. Henderson remains in Marion County Jail on a $31,000 bond.

Authorities said Williams will most likely not be charged with a crime because the shooting was justified.
