VIDEO: 7-Eleven Clerk Disarms Would-Be Burglar

WASHINGTON — A burglar attempted to stick up a 7-Eleven in Frederick, Md., but the clerk was having none of it.

The dramatic video of the incident shows a burglar pulling a gun on the clerk, only to have the clerk — Joseph Layman, per DCist — snatch the rifle out of his hands.

A brief scuffle ensued, then Layman pulled away with the gun.

The would-be burglar quickly realized how the tables had turned and fled the store.
