Richmond Police say that just before 2:30 Tuesday afternoon, a masked gunman entered the Superior Outlet and Pawn Shop with the intention of robbing it, but the gunman got much more than he bargained for.
"I can't believe somebody would put their lives in jeopardy for a few dollars and that is exactly what he did," said store owner, Mike Shaban.
Surveillance cameras caught the whole thing on tape. The tape shows the suspect holding a gun at the store owner, Mike Shaban's side and with a store full of customers forced him to the back of the store to steal money from the register. The suspect then closed the owner in a back room, but he did not stay there for long.
"I had my gun with me so I was listening and waiting for him to leave. He didn't expect me to come out shooting," said Shaban.
But that is exactly what Shaban did as soon as he saw the suspect raise his gun. Shaban said he told the suspect to freeze before firing three rounds, leaving his store riddled with bullet holes that go straight through stereo speakers, hitting walls and shattering glass, and possibly even hitting the suspect who took off on foot during the hail of gunfire.
"I'll defend myself and my store. I am not going to let anybody try to hurt me or one of my family members," said Shaban.
