    Two suspects entered the Metro PCS store, one of them armed with a handgun. When the pair demanded cash, the owner pulled his own handgun and fired multiple shots, wounding the juvenile in the shoulder. His clerk was also armed.

    Same happened here just yesterday. Clerk shot robber. Robber arrested at hospital. Accomplice arrested. LEOs looking for 3rd
    suspect. It is so common it is a wonder anyone will work in those convenience stores. Takes guts.

    I think they'd better look for a new job, they're not too good at the robbery game.

    Amazing owner wasn't shot given the position of gun-wielding perp. Start-stop the video to see the "mouth wide open/eyes as big as donuts" expression on perp's face when he sees owner has a gun. Good job owner - really ready.

    I guess that the robbers did not expect that . I always have wondered why the BG’s often run away although the have a firearm

    I guess that you are right; but then why carry a firearm is you are not ready to use it? Who knows how those "tough" BG's think!

    They're ready to use it, when there are no repercussions.

    They rob because they are cowards, is it no surprise that they run when there is resistance?

    Yep, that is probably the reason. Like almost always, the “tough” guys are not tough at all.
