By Dave Bartkowiak Jr.

DETROIT – A Detroit gas station clerk scared off two men who were trying to steal the ATM from inside his station on Sunday night.

The station is near Houston Whittier and Hayes streets on the city’s east side. Video from inside the building shows two men walk in and immediately start hitting the ATM with a sledgehammer.

The clerk is shown screaming at them before scaring them off.

“I told them, ‘Stop knocking my ATM before you get hurt,'” said Sonic Abdo, the gas station owner. “But they still knocking on it, so when I pull my gun out, they saw it and ran away.”

The men took off without being able to steal anything from the store.

Don’t miss the video.

South Carolina woman kills escaped jail inmate who kicked down her door, sheriff says
By Nicole Darrah | Fox News

Hours after he and another inmate escaped jail after beating up a security guard, a South Carolina inmate was fatally shot after he broke into a woman’s house, officials said.

Bruce McLaughlin Jr., 30, was shot in the head by the woman after he kicked in her back door on Tuesday, according to Pickens County authorities.

After he entered the home, McLaughlin grabbed a knife sharpening tool from the kitchen and headed toward the woman’s bedroom around 3 a.m. Sheriff Rick Clark said the woman was home alone and had undergone concealed weapons training at some point prior to the incident.

“This was a big guy. If she hadn’t had a weapon there’s no telling what would have happened,” the sheriff said. “I gave her a big hug. I told her how proud I was of her.”

Clark said the incident was “a shining example” of why owning and knowing how to properly use a gun is important.

McLaughlin had been in and out of the county jail roughly a dozen times on charges ranging from drug possession to assaulting a police officer to shoplifting, officials said. He was currently awaiting trial on first-degree burglary and grand larceny charges.

    “Sonic Abdo”

    The full name is Sonic Abdomen.
    His momma had a sonogram and there you have it.

    Smith and Wesson?

      The X-frame….500 or .460. More gun than I need, but a hell of a piece of engineering.

      • AW1Ed says:

        Friend has the S&W .500. Fookin’ thing has a sling to carry it. Doesn’t get fired much- 440 gn ammo is about $2.50 a pop, and it is not pleasant to fire.
        But it will get the job done.
        s&w 500

    “[T]he woman was home alone and had undergone concealed weapons training at some point prior to the incident.”
    Do journos start on the crime beat or is it the last place the editor looks?
    Anyway, good job fellow citizens!

    Gun grabber types would just tell the South Carolina woman “you should have called the police – you don’t need a gun.”

    “McLaughlin grabbed a knife sharpening tool from the kitchen….”

    Doesn’t sound as though he’s the brightest bulb in the bin, does it? Don’t bring a knife sharpener to a gun fight – something like that?

    And the sheriff gave her a hug. Works for me.

    Look for the Detroit fellas at the Church Choir Practice tonight. They usually hold it right after the prayer meeting. Those fellas only wanted the ATM Machine to buy new choir robes.

    Having a longer knife (machete) at a gun fight still doesn’t change the fact that you are still bringing a knife to a gunfight. Nothing good ever happens at 2:00 am.

    Taking a knife sharpening tool to a gun fight is even stupider than taking a knife to a gun fight. Looks like homeboys cashed in their retirement plan from their crime careers.
