Shop keeper fends off gunman

A store owner in the US state of Nevada confronted a gunman during a botched robbery attempt.

Surveillance video from the store shows the masked gunman shooting at 36 year old Sam Singh.

Singh replied by throwing goods at the robber who attempted to leave through the back door which was locked.

The robber then had to charge back through the store to exit through the front door empty handed.

Singh is recovering after undergoing surgery on his shoulder and forearm. He is expected to make a full recovery.
