A brave shop owner defended his shop against an armed criminal with a chair.

A security camera filmed the incident. The criminal entered the shop and fired two warning shots into the air and asked for money. The shopkeeper didn't want to give him the money. He took the chair and defended his shop with the chair.

The criminal said he has been robbing shops to pay his debts to local drug gangs.

Interesting words: defend (protect), rob (attack and take money).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
