MUNCIE, Ind. -- (WXIN) -- A gas station clerk fought off a gunman with a freshly brewed, piping hot cup of coffee.
Just after 6 a.m. Sunday, the clerk told police he went to the counter to fill up a cup of coffee. When the clerk turned around he saw a masked man pointing a gun at him.
Surveillance cameras from inside the Marathon Gas Station show the suspect making it only a few steps into the store. He quickly brings his gun up and within seconds you can see the cup of coffee flying at him. The clerk had good aim; the cup hits the gunman directly in the face.
