OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities in Oklahoma City are searching for a man who was reportedly caught off guard when he allegedly tried to rob a local convenience store.

Oklahoma City police say an alleged suspect tried to rob the Circle L Food Mart, located in the 9000 block of N. Western Ave. recently.

The alleged suspect, who was wearing a gray hoodie, walked into the store with a gun in his hand.

However, he had no idea the female clerk was reaching for a gun of her own.

Authorities say the man ran out of the store, but not before staring straight into one of the store’s surveillance cameras.
