Two robbers in California might consider themselves lucky after they tried to rob a gas station.
The video above shows one man walking between two customers then pointing a pistol at the two clerks.
His partner jumps over the counter.
The clerks and customers hit the ground, but the security guard -- standing by the door—drew his gun and told them to freeze.
One of them turned and pointed his gun at the guard who fired at them.
The guard missed and both the bandits ran.
The guard says in three years working at the store , it was the first time someone tried to rob the place.
