This Police Officer Saved a Stray Puppy That He Almost Ran Over

VIDEO: Gunfire Erupts at Packed NYC Rap Concert; 1 Killed, 3 Wounded

A young Maryland boy tried his best to stop two armed men from robbing the video game store where he was shopping. 

Surveillance video from the Silver Spring GameStop store shows the seven-year-old approach one of the gun-wielding men and punch him twice. 

The masked man then shoved the boy out of the way and continued with the heist. 

The boy, his parents and the clerks were ordered to lie down behind the counter as the thieves stole cash and fled.

The boy's father said he wasn't near his son in the store when the robbers walked in and approached his son.

"He saw somebody who was a stranger, who seemed most dangerous to him and he tried to defend himself. I think it was his natural instinct taking over there," the father told WTTG.

Luckily the suspects did not harm the boy or others before escaping.

The suspects are both described as black men in their 20s. Anyone with information should call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 1-866-411-8477.

Watch the surveillance video above.
