An armed robber in Roanoke, VA apparently picked the wrong convenience store to rob last week.
According to media reports, the suspect, armed with a handgun, entered the store, brandished the firearm and demanded cash.
When the suspect was attempting to add beer and condoms to his bag of stolen goods, the store’s owner, Munawarri Hussain, who is a veteran of the Pakistani Army, drew a firearm and opened fire.
The suspect was struck once in the shoulder. However, that was not the end of the incident. Hussain and the suspect continued a physical altercation in the parking lot.
According to WSET,
Once the shooting stopped inside the fight came outside into the parking lot. Mr. Hussain says he and the suspect tussled for between 15 and 20 minutes while several people walked by and even watched. Not one of them decided to stop and help.
The fighting finally stopped after both men became exhausted. Police would arrest Greene behind a nearby church.
Despite the ordeal, Hussain managed to make it into work the next morning and opened the store on time.
The suspect was treated and released from an area hospital for non-life threatening wounds.
