A grocery store clerk who was minding his own business suddenly found himself at the mercy of three armed robbers. When he tried to defend himself by pulling his own handgun out from behind the counter, the brave cashier found himself in the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. Shocking surveillance footage out of Tucker, Georgia, shows the moment when an unsuspecting grocery store employee was suddenly accosted by three gun-wielding thugs. The clerk can be seen holding his arms up defensively as one of the robbers walks behind the counter and pistol-whips him several times in the head. When the employee goes to reach for a weapon, a second robber tackles him and begins firing several close-range shots, including an execution-style shot to the back of the head. The clerk falls to the ground as the gang of robbers flees emptyhanded from the grocery store. Although he was shot in the arm, the hand, and twice in the head, the clerk miraculously survived and was able to call 911 – and even managed to walk unassisted to a stretcher when an ambulance arrived. Did… did we just witness a future superhero’s origin story?
A hostage situation was resolved by a brave cashier who managed to fend off the gun-toting robber who abducted a terrified captive by using – wait for it – a can of aerosol dog repellent. And no, the hostage-taker was not a dog. Unintentionally hilarious surveillance footage shows the dramatic incident just as it unfolded: a man burst into a convenience store brandishing a firearm pointed at the head of an unsuspecting a victim and ordered the store clerk to hand over cash from the register. Instead, the quick-thinking cashier ducked under the counter and resurfaced holding his own weapon, which was nothing other than a can of spray intended to discipline disobedient pooches. All it took was one spritz from the pup spray can to send the culprit frantically fleeing from the store, knocking over a display shelf in the process. The shopkeeper can even be seen giving chase, apparently realizing that he was wielding the crook’s kryptonite. Now, police are praising the courageous cashier as a hero for not only thwarting a potential robbery but also rescuing the hostage, who managed to wrest free from the culprit’s grasp in the midst of the action.
