Armed Clerk Stops Robbery - Video Leads to Arrests

Tips Lead Police To Fairfield Robbery Suspects - cbs13.com
Surveillance video shows two suspects, clad in black hooded sweatshirts and carrying revolvers, walking into the Metro PCS store just after 3:15 p.m. on Friday.

Seconds after entering the store, one suspect hops over the counter as the other gunman steps over to the other side of the store and aims at a store employee. That clerk's hand, holding a pistol, enters the frame of the video and takes a shot, and the two suspects duck and flee the store.
Three arrests have been made: the 2 robbers and the getaway driver.
Police say Metro PCS stores are often targeted by robbers because they deal with a lot of cash transactions.

A year ago, an employee at a Suisun City Metro PCS store was killed execution-style during a robbery.
Which probably explains why they aren't relying on the "cooperate to be safe" strategy.

Self-defense works. Good Guys 3, Bad Guys 0.
