Two armed, masked men walked into a Kinston, North Carolina store planning to rob the place, but their crime did not go as planned, WITN reports.

As soon as the men entered the store and threatened the cashier with a rifle, the cashier pulled out his pistol and immediately opened fire.

Kinston police released the survelliance camera footage of the crime Wednesday, and it’s intense.


The video shows the two men approach the cashier and point a rifle straight in his face. Not missing a beat, the cashier draws his own weapon and shoots at the two men. It’s unclear if he hits anyone.

The criminals flee the scene, dropping their gun as they run outside. Police then say the criminals drove away in a silver vehicle.

Something tells me the criminal investigation is going to be pretty easy…

Maybe it’s the fact they dropped a gun covered in their fingerprints and DNA at the scene of the crime.

Or maybe because they’re dumb enough to try to rob a store in North Carolina, so they probably aren’t very bright overall.

It ain’t the Northeast! Everyone’s packing.
