MABLETON, GEORGIA — An armed robber was shot dead and his accomplice is on the run after a failed hold-up at a gun store in Georgia.

Security camera footage of the fatal Dec. 26 incident was released this week.

It shows gun store owner Jimmy Groover, 64, moving faster than green grass through a goose to defend his property and his life.

Two unidentified armed men burst into the store in broad daylight, pointed their pistols, and threatened to kill the owner and his assistant if they didn’t get down on the floor, NBC affiliate WXIA reported.

But they didn’t count on old Jimmy Groover being armed and ready.

In the blink of an eye, the gun store owner fired at the first robber, shooting him dead. The other suspect skedaddled and he’s now wanted by the police.

Groover said he felt bad about killing the guy but knew he had little choice after the robbers made threats to kill.

Groover’s store has been robbed around 20 times over the years but this is the first time he’s ever shot one of the bandits.

Detectives said it was unlikely the grandfather would be charged with any crime because he acted in self-defense.
