A would-be armed robber at a Warren convenience store ran away after the clerk fired a shot in his direction, according to a police report.

The man working the counter at the Pit Stop on Youngstown Road SE told police that a man with a gun began crawling through the drive-through window just before midnight Monday.

The clerk says after he pulled his own gun from under the register and fired a shot, the intruder ran away.

Police say surveillance video shows the suspect pulls a gun out of his waistband before lifting the window.

After the clerk fired a shot,  police say the suspect could be seen running toward Kenilworth Avenue.

Officers brought in a K9 to help track the suspect, but couldn’t locate him.
