LONG BEACH (CBS) Long Beach police are looking for two would-be armed robbers who fled a convenience store when the owner pulled out a gun and started shooting.
It happened in the 1300 block of West Willow Street late Friday night. The entire incident was caught on tape.
Authorities say two men wearing hoodies attempted to rob the Meadow Made Dairy around 10:30 p.m.
The store owner, 40-year-old Mean Kim, believes his quick reaction probably saved his life.
Mean spoke to CBS2 and KCAL9 reporter Art Barron about his ordeal. I feel like Im in a battlefield right now, Kim says.
Kim grew up in Cambodia during the war. Friday night he became intimately involved with gunfire again.
He didnt hesitate to reach for his weapon. I tried to shoot them. I know they have guns. And if I dont shoot them, they might have a chance to shoot me, before I shoot them.
Kims shots missed the two would-be robbers.
Kim says the two suspects fled in a waiting car.
He showed the video to several customers today. Nelly Perea watched the tape and then told Barron, Im just amazed right now. Its crazy.
Kim acknowledged that the ordeal left him a bit rattled. It shocked me, he said, Ive been here five years and nothing like this ever happened.
There were no customers in the store at the time of the shooting.
awwwwwwwwwww how adorable..the robbers were wearing hoodies..can’t be, we have been told over and over again by the media that black men who wear hoodies are the sweetest people you can meet and not at all dangerous
Anyone want to take up a collection to give Mr Kim some range time?
If Obama had a son......
“If Obama had a son......”
He’d be wearin’ dat hoodie there.
It may even convince the perps to seek more honest employment.
Where’s teh actual tape? The question is whether the Nikes on the feet of the Urban Black Ferals were leaving puffs of burning rubber smoke at each step?
I'm cracking up here.
Mean Kim. Sounds like "Bad John".
You got a name like that, and you'd better be ready to draw down on 'em!
"Mean Kim. Mean Kiii-im. Big Mean Kim. (Mean Kim.)"
LeRoy Brown. Meanest man in town.
Too bad we couldn’t export our own home grown thugs to Siberia. Imported Asians make better Americans than the gagsta creeps from the US hoods.
