Hafiz Alam, a store clerk, fought back after an armed robbery in Albany. Tonight, a suspect is in custody following a stand off with police.

The robbery happened at Quail Street News around 5:20 A.M. Store clerk Hafiz Alam was behind the counter when a man walked in the door and demanded money. Alam opened the register and handed over the money, but while putting the cash away, the robber made a mistake. The man set his shotgun on the counter, and while he wasn’t paying attention Alam grabbed the gun. [more]
