Surveillance footage captured the moment two masked robbers tried to knock-off a gun store with the owner and an employee still present inside, not thinking the victims would be armed.

The two masked thieves stormed the Dixie Gun and Pawn store in Mableton, Georgia but received a surprise when the owner Jimmy Groover, didn’t hesitate to pull out his concealed firearm and opened fire.

The 64-year-old grandfather fired off two rounds, killing one of the masked assailants and was ready to blast the second suspect, who managed to quickly flee the store.

Both Groover and his employee remained unscathed during the incident.

“I had no other choice. I hate that it happened, I’ve been doing this 30 years. Nothing like this has ever happened, Groover told 13WMAZ.

“They came in yelling ‘Get down on the floor, get down on the floor or I’ll kill you. Then they shot at me,'” Groover recalled. “I never wanted this to happen but I want to go home at night, too.”
