Store clerk spoils robber's plans

HIGH POINT, NC (CNN) - A suspected robber will probably think twice next time he wants to rob one North Carolina grocery store after a store clerk turned the robber's own gun on him.

Surveillance video shows the suspect putting his gun on the clerk's counter to grab money from the cash register.

The clerk quickly snatched up the gun and turned it on the suspect.

The suspect bolted for the door so fast, he lost his shoe in the escape.

"Everybody's like, 'Oh, you're a hero. You did so good.' But I'm not a hero," April Wilmer, the store clerk, said. "I just did what I thought was right. I would rather me have the gun than him have the gun."

No one was hurt, but the suspect did make off with an unknown amount of cash.
