OKLAHOMA CITY -

A clerk at an Oklahoma City Dollar General Store managed to scare off a gunman with just a look.

A man walked into the store at S.W. 44th Street and May on December 1. The suspect went to the checkout counter and raised his shirt, revealing a gun tucked into his waistband.

The gunman demanded money, but the clerk refused to comply and just stared at the suspect. The suspect soon gave up and walked out of the store.

Police have released a surveillance photo taken of the suspect while he was in the store. The suspect is a white male, who was wearing a yellow shirt and pajama pants. He also had a backpack.

Anyone with information about the attempted robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
