    Man shoots at suspected burglars, injures one at gas station in West Palm Beach

    A would-be burglar is expected to survive after being shot Saturday morning by the man he was trying to rob at local gas station, according to a Palm Beach Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.

    The victim was getting gas when after three black men attempted to rob a man at the Shell gas station at N. Military Trail and Community Drive at 6:47 a.m.

    Deputies say the man feared for his life and fired his gun -- which he has a concealed weapons permit for -- and shot one of the suspects.

    While all suspects fled, the one who was shot was apprehended by police and is expected to survive.
