He didn’t notice anyone behind the counter, so he stands around and waits. At the same time, the store clerk was in the back getting his own gun because he had seen the man arm himself before coming into the store.

Finally, the man sees the store clerk return with his gun pointed toward him. The man tells the clerk he isn’t from the area and is from Chicago. Instead of robbing the store, the man decided to leave.

Deputies said they found and arrested Rakim Stephen Tate, 32, in Santa Rosa County.

Tate was charged with openly carrying a prohibited weapon and attempted robbery with a firearm. His shotgun was also recovered by deputies.
