The attempted robbery was captured on the store's surveillance cameras.

The boy is seen walking into the store wearing a bike helmet and baggy clothes.

He walked down an aisle, then to a checkout register.

According to one employee, the boy pointed the gun and said, "Give me the money."

Another employee, who didn't want to use his name, said he didn't know if the gun was real or fake, and that he just wanted to make sure it didn't go off.

"As soon as I moved I reached over to him, twisted his wrist, took the gun away," he said.

The boy is also seen struggling with a worker as he tried to take him to the office.

A store manager called police.

An employee told WPBF 25 News the gun was loaded, but there was no bullet in the chamber.

The boy's mother, Eboni Alls, said he had told her he was going to the park to play and didn't know anything was wrong until it was time for her to pick up her other son.

"When I grabbed my purse, I'm like, it was so light. I'm like, I knew I was missing something. I said, 'Where's my gun?'" Alls said.

The boy cannot visit the grocery store and has been released from home detention. Additionally, he will have to enter a diversion program.

I guessed his race as well as where this happened before I even clicked the thread topic and watched the video. Am I going to hell?

They blow up so fast... this is why we have gun safes or lockers, and not just leave it in your purse so your 8 year old takes it. It doesn't surprise me though.

kids these days, I had a few here that pointed a bebe gun at my cat -It took me a moment to realize it wasn't a real gun, because it sure as hell looked alike, and it didn't have that orange tip- companies really need to change that, I don't blame officers who think its real and go ondefense.
honestly though, morals are being lost here and these generations are growing up bad.
ooooh I cant wait until they are older and do worse crime


and get away with it
