 Cowboy Single-Handedly Stops Armed Robber

One lone cowboy saves a convenience store after stopping an armed robber.

It was a scary situation in Monterrey, Mexico when an armed robber ran into this convenience store. He walked right up to the cashier and demanded money while pointing the gun at her. Then, he turned to the customer at the counter and raised the gun to him. We can't hear what he said, but it definitely looks like the robber was shouting a warning. But then the gunman did something he never should've.

He turned his back on the man with the cowboy hat, and in that split second, everything changed. The brave customer seized the opportunity to wrestle the gun away from the robber.

They continued to struggle with each other when an employee from the back ran and grabbed the gun. The robber tries to make a run for it, but 2 employees and the brave cowboy tackle him to the ground. You can see the cashier reaching for the phone to call for help.

This entire nerve-wracking moment is captured on security cameras. I was truly on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next.
