A liquor store owner fought off two gunmen who attempted to rob his store in Bridgeport Tuesday night.
The owner of the Campus Package Store on Park Avenue says he had already gotten robbed last week and did not want it to happen again. At around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, police say the two armed suspects entered the store and pointed their weapons at the owner and another man behind the counter.
Surveillance video caught the ensuing struggle, and the store's owner managed to pull off the hooded sweatshirt one of the suspects was wearing. The store's owner says he pointed a handgun at the suspects, but did not shoot because he was afraid of hitting one of his employees.
Anyone who recognizes either of the suspects from the surveillance video is asked to call the police.
