Hillsborough gas station owner shot in leg during robbery

TAMPA — Deputies were searching for two men who robbed a gas station and shot the owner in the leg Wednesday night.

Two men walked into the BP station at 9702 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and demanded money. As the two attempted to take money from Tae Chun Kang, 42, the owner struggled with them and a gun fired, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. Kang was taken to the hospital with a non life-threatening injury, deputies said.

A family member of Kang's was in the back room during the robbery just before 8:30 p.m. and called 911.
