“He Shoot My Arm Off!” – Would-Be Robbers Pick Wrong SoCal Liquor Store to Rob (VIDEO)

A would-be robber picked the wrong Southern California liquor store to rob this week.

When the robber walked into the store with his gun in hand, the 80-year-old store owner blew his arm off with a shotgun saying it was either ‘him or me.’

“Craig Cope, 80, said he feared for his life as four would-be thieves drove up early Sunday to Norco Market & Liquor in Norco, where he was behind the counter when one of the assailants busted in with a rifle and yelled at him to freeze,” the New York Post reported.

“I got a long gun pointing directly at me,” Cope told the outlet. “It was either him or me and I was a little bit faster.”

The would-be robber is then seen screaming, “He shoot my arm off! He shoot my arm off!…” as he ran to his car and his homies took off.

According to reports, the elderly store owner suffered a heart attack after the shooting but is now in stable condition.

It shouldn’t be too hard for the police to find and arrest this young criminal — Check the local hospitals for men without arms.

Let’s also hope they captured his armed friend who was following him into the store.

ABC7 reported:

Footage shows the armed suspect burst into the business and the owner immediately shoot a single blast from his firearm.

Cameras outside captured the suspect frantically screaming, “He shot my arm off! He shot my arm off!”

Multiple suspects then quickly take off in a dark-colored SUV and almost leave a person behind, the footage shows.

Authorities say the incident happened at Norco Market & Liquor in the 800 block of Sixth Street around 2:47 a.m. Sunday. Four suspects armed with long guns were involved in the attempted robbery and were wearing facial coverings, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
