Store clerk pulled out his “big gun” and chased away would-be robbers

by Detective Renee Witt - Seattle Police Blotter

A store clerk chased away would be robbers last night in West Seattle. On 11/23/13, at approximately 10:00 p.m., two unknown masked males went into a store in the 8800 block of 9th Av SW and pointed a gun at the clerk, demanding money.

The clerk recognized that the gun the suspects were using was a fake, so he reached down and brought his own gun up, telling the would be robbers that his gun was “bigger”. The suspects ran out of the store, and quickly left in their getaway car.

An area check for the suspects was negative.
