Crooks beware, this may be the tipping point of Chicago crime.

Two armed robbers entered a Chi-Town shop several days ago with every intent of intimidating the employees with loaded weapons, and taking off with loads of cash. What they didn’t expect during the heist was a bat-wielding shop owner and his brother-in-law fighting back with all their might - and tools in sight.

In a ridiculous stand-off captured by the store’s surveillance camera and later seen on CNN's Early Start, 62-year-old Luiz Quizphe and his brother-in-law Luis Aucaquizhpi battle the burglars. At one point in the video, Aucaquizhpi is spotted chasing the gunman with a fire extinguisher. This, after tossing a stool at the perpetrator. Quizphe, meanwhile, fights an armed robber with a bat while facing a continuous stream of bullets. NBC Chicago reports city police found 10 shell casings on the floor after the incident, which left Quizphe hospitalized over a gunshot wound in his leg.
