If you're going to rob a store in Chicago, it'd probably be smart to make sure it's not one owned by Luis Quizhpe. In the video above, you can see the 62-year-old Quizhipe absolutely wrecking shit as he successfully fends off two gunmen armed only with a baseball bat.

One gunman fired a total of 10 shots, wounding Quizhpe in the leg, while the other held a gun to Quizhpe's brother-in-law's head.

"I thought it was a toy, but what made me frightened and really made me angry was when they grabbed my brother-in-law by the neck and they were pointing the gun at him," Quizhpe, 62, said Wednesday from Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was nursing a leg wound.

"It was like the Fourth of July. Pow, pow, pow," he said. "Then he was yelling, 'Kill the (expletive)."

Quizhpe didn't realize he'd been shot until the incident was over and he was on the phone with police. "I felt something warm down my leg," he told the Chicago Tribune. "I lost about a pint of blood."


One of the alleged shooters, Cornell Mack, 53, was arrested and charged with attempted murder and armed robbery. Mack was hospitalized shortly after his arrest for a gunshot wound to the chest, reportedly fired by his still-at-large accomplice.
