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.
