Last month, a store clerk at a Stop & Shop deli in Brentwood, N.Y. was minding his own business...
...when a masked man came in carrying a semi-automatic .22 caliber handgun.
The man managed to fire a shot, hitting the wall behind the store's clerk.
The crook was then chased out of the store by the clerk who just so happened to keep a massive knife behind the counter.
Neither the would-be-robber or the clerk were harmed during the incident.
And police are still looking for the masked man who will probably think twice about robbing a deli in the future.
Here's a quick GIF summary of what happened if you can't watch the video:
