Self-described ‘gangsta’ comes up short in encounter with armed clerk

A 20-year-old Florida man recently learned the difference between brandishing a gun for a social media photo and pointing one at an also-armed liquor store clerk.

According to recent reports, Cody Bolesta was one of two individuals who attempted to rob a Tampa Bay businesson Sunday. Unlike his accomplice, however, Bolesta did not survive the encounter with a 57-year-old employee.

Following an exchange of gunfire between the clerk and the would-be robbers, Bolesta was pronounced dead on the sidewalk outside of his intended target, Cut Rate Liquors. The deceased suspect reportedly had a penchant in life for posing with a revolver and celebrating his “gangsta” credentials in posts to his Facebook profile.
