Posted: Updated:

A gun-wielding robber was caught on tape while attempting to hold up a cell phone store in Chicago. Video surveillance shows the store's manager grabbing the gun from the robber's hands and the two fell to the floor and wrestled over the weapon, during which time the robber pulled the trigger and sent a bullet through a female employee's arm, according to CBS News.

"I was happy to be alive," said the store manager. "I knew that if he had won that battle for the gun, that it might not have turned out that way."
