A marine corps veteran managed to disarm a pair of gun totting robbers just as they were about to hold up a convenience store in Arizona on Wednesday.
The footage of the heroic act has since gone viral on social media.
As Fox News reports:
The incident happened at around 4:30 a.m. inside the convenience store at a Chevron gas station, the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office said.
The sheriff’s office released surveillance footage from inside the store that shows three suspects entering the Chevron – with one suspect brandishing a handgun.
The armed suspect walks next to a lone store customer while pointing the weapon toward the cashier, according to the 8-second video clip. The customer acts immediately, lunging at the armed suspect.
When responding deputies asked the customer how he was able to take control of the dangerous situation, he stated: “The Marine Corps taught me not to [mess] around.”
A juvenile suspects was later booked into county jail after being successfully detained by the brave marine.
