MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

It was just after midnight Friday, June 22nd following shift change at the Shell at 6630 Rangeline Road. An armed robber picking not only the wrong gas station but the wrong clerk. 

"He immediately pulled the gun out. Made it known he had a gun. And I made it known I wasn't worried about no gun," said Jonathan Martin, store clerk. 

Closing his register, Martin stood his ground -- all the while a loaded 9 millimeter pointing straight at him. 

"He said give me everything in your drawer and I looked at him and said you ain't going to do nothing," recalled Martin. 

What he did do is cock the gun, which caused a bullet to fall out. 

"I guess that's when he lost all faith in what he was doing... He just realized he better give it up," said Martin. 

Eventually leaving without a dime, he ran away on foot. Based on what he saw, Martin believes he wasn't dealing with an experienced criminal.  

"He was a would-be robber that had a failed attempt. He should probably give up his life of crime," said Martin. 

If you recognize the man in the video or have information that can help investigators -- Mobile Police would love to hear from you.
