An armed man tried to rob a grocery store in North Carolina, but had the tables turned on him. Surveillance video caught the action at the store in High Point.

The robber put his gun on the counter when he reached for the cash.

The quick-thinking clerk then grabbed the gun and turned it on the man.

The suspect ran so fast out of the store, he lost his shoe.

"Everybody's like, 'Oh, you're a hero. You did so good.' But I'm not a hero. I just did what I thought was right. I would rather me have the gun than him have the gun," said April Wilmer.

No one was hurt, but the robber did make off with an unknown amount of money.
