A man who buys and sells gold and jewelry pulled a gun to fend off two armed robbers Friday morning. This all happened about 10:45am at an antique mall along the Katy Freeway feeder, near Beltway 8.

An eyewitness says two men with guns came into Harry Little's shop. Robert George says he was trying to grab one robber's gun when another robber put a gun to his back. When one of the armed men started to go around the counter, the shop owner pulled out his gun.

"Harry Little pulled out his gun and shot. The shot missed," George said. "The minute the shot rang out they all just too off, took around the corner and ran out."

The shot broke a window but did not hit anyone. Police have not found the two armed men.
