They picked the wrong store to rob.

An 80-year-old man shot a would-be robber in a California liquor store and the incident was all caught on new high-definition cameras.

The owner of the store saw the man exit a vehicle with a huge gun and that is when he grabbed his own shotgun and hid behind the counter in the store.

When the masked man pointed his rifle at the store owner, that is when the 80-year-old man shot, striking the would-be robber in the arm.

The man who was attempting to rob the store quickly exits it screaming, "He shot my arm off."

The vehicle is then seen on camera driving away from the store and then ultimately ending up at a local hospital, where all suspects were arrested.

According to a report, the owner armed himself after a number of convenience stores were robbed in his area.

Sadly, the store owner suffered a heart attack in this incident but is reportedly going to fully recover from it.

As for the man who was shot by the store owner, he is still in the hospital recovering from the gunshot wound.

Here's the footage from inside of the store and from the parking lot after the shooting. Viewer discretion is advised.

Here's a full report from the convenience store where the shooting happened.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
