The moment a victim shot his two would-be attackers in the legs during a brazen Los Angeles robbery on Monday was caught on surveillance video.

The video shows the male victim standing with two women while holding a shopping bag near Melrose Avenue and Vista Street when a Dodge Avenger reversed toward them and the two robbers jumped out of the car around 7:10 p.m. on Monday.

The male victim then pulls his own weapon from his pocket and shoots at the robbers at least four times while dropping his shopping bag and turning to run in the opposite direction.
