How stupid do you have to be to even think this is going to go well? This robber apparently thought this would go smoothly. He was fatally shot on the spot.
An armed robber was killed on camera as he tried to hold up a gun store by its 64-year-old owner.
Surveillance footage at Dixie Gun and Pawn in Mableton, Georgia, showed the moment the would-be criminal and an accomplice stormed into the store dressed in ski masks.
They aimed their guns towards an employee who held his hands up in a plea for mercy before store owner Jimmy Groover opened fire.
The 64-year-old grandfather reached for his own gun and shot one of the robbers dead while the other ran for his life.
Later, Groover said he had no choice but to shoot the man.
The attempted robbery took place at 11am on December 26 while Groover, the employee and two customers were inside.
