    [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Orlando, Fla. -- A Central Florida man who collects cash for parking at a church fought off five armed men who had ambushed him and demanded cash.

    The 65-year-old victim, who did not want to be identified, said he was collecting cash in the Parramore area before an Orlando Magic basketball game when someone put a gun to his head.

    He noticed that that he was surrounded by four other men as well.

    The man said he pretended to reach into his jacket for cash but instead pulled out his hidden gun and opened fire.

    The men fled during the shooting and it was not known if any of them were hit by bullets.

    The victim said he had a permit for the concealed weapon.

    He said he has been a victim of crime before.

    "A couple of years ago, eight teens attacked me with a pipe trying to rob me," the man said.

    Anyone with information concerning the crime is urged to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
