20-Year-Old Florida Man Claims Mega Millions Jackpot

PORT RICHEY, Fla. - A young Florida man just became millions of dollars richer.

Shane Missler, 20, of Port Richey, Florida, claimed last week's $451 million Mega Millions jackpot Friday.

He says he hopes to use the money to pursue a variety of passions and do some good for humanity.

Missler first told his brother of his winnings but waited until the next day to tell his father.

He selected to receive the prize in a single lump-sum payment of almost $282 million.

The 7-11 where he purchased the quick pick ticket will receive a $100,000 bonus.

Florida lottery officials say this jackpot generated $23 million for the state's schools.
