• WATCH: Store Owner Turns Robbery Into Epic Shootout

    You’d think a pair of armed men could carry out a heist with no problem, but one store owner proved that isn’t the case.

    Police are searching for one of two armed Florida robbers who fled after the robbery Monday of an auto parts store went bad, Local 10 reports.

    Surveillance video of the incident shows two armed robbers hold two men at gunpoint. One of the robbers pistol whips the store owner, Andrew Hepburn, 39. But when the robber gets distracted, Hepburn jumps on him, wrestling the gun away from him before shooting him five times in the chest.

    Hepburn and the other robber exchange gunfire before the robber flees. Hepburn is wounded when a bullet goes through the wall. After the other robber flees, Hepburn gives the wounded robber a few good whacks before an ambulance arrives to take him to the hospital.

    One of the alleged robbers, Conrad Bloomfield, 36, has been charged with attempted armed robbery and attempted murder.
