A suspected robber is dead after allegedly trying to rob a Family Dollar in Dekalb County, Georgia, and ignoring the customer who was armed behind him during the altercation.

The attempted robbery occurred on Tuesday morning when a man walked into the discount store and pointed a gun at two employees.

While one employee was handing over money to the robber, a customer walked from the back of the store to the front, and witnessed the robber pointing his gun at the employee's head.

He then pulled his own gun out and shot the robber several times. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

Four or five other customers were in the store at the time.

The employee who faced the robber's gun was shaken up by the incident, but was grateful to the customer who foiled the robbery, police said.

"She's upset. She's dealing with corporate right now," Sgt. Lynn Shuler said, "but she's fine."

Police say the customer who killed the would-be robber will not be charged with any crime. They are hailing him as a "good Samaritan" for stopping the robbery and possibly saving the lives of many people.

Here's a local news video about the deadly altercation:
