Customer shoots masked fast food robber through drive-thru window

A 60-year-old California man robbing a fast food restaurant was shot twice when a customer  opened fire on him from the drive-thru window,

The masked robber is seen in a surveillance video throwing a bag at the cashier at the Cozy Corner Drive-In in Santa Ana, demanded she fill it up with cash, according to CBS Los Angeles.

As the robber grabbed the bag, a customer at the drive-thru window opened fire. A bullet is seen hitting cups and other objects on the counter as the cashier dives for cover.

But that’s not the only thing that was hit, as police say the would-be robber suffered two gunshot wounds — he is now recovering in a hospital.

While there may be a rush to say a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun, it’s not clear who the outside shooter was, as he fled the scene after shooting the crook, CBS Los Angeles reported.

A cook at the restaurant told the CBS affiliate a man and two women pulled up at the drive-thru while the robber was inside.

As for the cashier, the restaurant’s manager, Francisco Reyno, told NBC Los Angles no employees were hurt and that the stolen money, $274, was recovered.
