Badass Clerk Fearlessly Rips Away Shotgun During Armed Robbery

A Maryland convenience store clerk has been hailed as a hero for courageously disarming a shotgun-wielding robber. Shocking video of the incident has surfaced that shows the dangerous moment that quickly became life-threatening for the clerk.

In the clip, which was filmed at a 7-Eleven in the city of Frederick, the store clerk can be seen helping two customers when an armed criminal bursts onto the scene. He approaches the register, face obscured by a hoodie and mask, and holds the shotgun within inches of the cashier.

The robber seems to make demands of the store clerk, but the clerk does not reach to grab money from the cash register. Instead, he lunges forward and grabs the shotgu by the barrel, yanking it towards him and angling it away from his body. The two struggle for several tense moments before the clerk gains control of the shotgun and sends the robber sprinting out of the store.

Police were able to apprehend the would-be thief the next day, identifying him as 18-year-old Ryan J. Wages. The teen faces a charge of armed robbery and remains behind bars on a $200,000 bail, and authorities now have reason to believe that he is behind a significant number of unsolved crimes in the area.
