    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- For the second time in a week, a store clerk fought back against would-be robbers.

    The attempted robbery occurred at the Walford Market in Clinton Township at about 8 p.m., NBC 4's David Wayne reported.

    Police said 19-year-old Shandos Young and 18-year-old Justin Cockrell entered the market with bandanas over their faces and threatened the owner and another employee.

    The store owner wrestled the gun away from one of the robbers and then fired the gun at them.

    "I seen these guys storm in with their guns. I dropped the phone, backed away, drew my gun and fired two shots and just tried to get them out of the store," said Clive Weidle, the store clerk.

    Investigators said set of footprints leading away from the store guided officers to the alleged weapon, a coat and latex gloves.

    Both teenagers were captured a few blocks away and charged in connection with the robbery.

    Officials said the extensive surveillance system in the market showed the incident from several angles.

    The teens are scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

    No injuries were reported.

    Walford Market must have been robbed half a dozen times in the last ten years. On one incident in the late nineties one of these piece of trash thugs killed a young lady who was a clerk there. It's a shame that a decent person can't run a even business without the constant threat of being robbed or murdered.

    I grew around and still live close to this area. Morse Road/Cleveland ave/Northen Lights has gotten so ghetto this last few years, started in the early to mid nineties, There are still some good people but it's not a safe place for decent people to live anymore..
