Steven Gilmore, 21, is a wannabe rapper who, in an effort to gain "street cred" tried to rob a Florida convenience store Friday night and shot an employee in the head with a BB gun.
Upon his arrest Saturday night he admitted to a robbing another restaurant, telling police that he thought the robberies would provide him the kind of reputation he apparently believes is required in the rap world.
According to a Gainesville Police Department report, Steven, wearing a bandanna over his face and carrying a BB gun, fled empty-handed from the Super Store convenience outlet after struggling with a store clerk over the weapon. During the encounter, the clerk, Dharmedra Patel, was shot in the temple and suffered a laceration and bleeding. The Hungry Howie's heist netted Gilmore about $900, records show, and he departed the crime scene on a moped driven by a 16-year-old accomplice.
He's charged with attempted armed robbery and aggravated assault charges is still locked up in Alachua County Jail on the felony counts.
What a donkey!
