3. Several police blunders have plagued the investigation. Botha initially said the two witnesses who heard screaming from Pistorius' house on the night of the killing were 600 meters away. He later changed the distance to 300 meters. Other admissions: Investigators missed a spent bullet in the toilet and didn't take pictures of a box of bullets but snapped photos of Pistorius' medals.

DELTONA, Fla. -

Volusia County deputies are looking for a lone gunman who robbed a 7-Eleven store in Deltona early Sunday morning.

Deputies said no shots were fired and no one was injured in the robbery, which occurred shortly after 3 a.m. at the 7-Eleven at 839 Debary Avenue.

The store clerk, a 20-year-old man, said the suspect came into the business carrying a rifle and demanded money, deputies said.

The clerk complied with the robber’s demands and opened the register and handed over an undisclosed amount of money, deputies said.

The man then fled out the door and was last seen running behind the store, deputies said.

Deputies said they searched the area around the store, but  the suspect wasn’t located.

Deputies said he was described as between 5’6” and 5’8”, with a thin build. The robber was wearing all black clothing, and the clerk -- who was alone in the store at the time -- said that he detected what sounded like an Hispanic accent.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, toll-free, at (888) 277-TIPS.
