A Georgia store clerk fought off a would-be robber this week after the suspect pointed a gun at the clerk. 

The man, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, walked into the store to buy a soda and then pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money from the register.

Instead of giving the suspect money, the clerk grabbed the man’s gun and a struggle ensued. The clerk grabbed a hammer and tried to strike the man with it. 

The clerk then chased the man outside the store. 

Neither the man or the clerk were injured. 

The 17-year-old suspect was later arrested and is facing robbery charges.
