A pair of masked and armed robbers entered a liquor store in Lexington, Tenn. and attempted to rob the establishment. One of the thieves approached store owner Johnny Adams and punched him in the face. Adams responded by retrieving a pistol from under register, firing at the robber, and chasing the thieves out of the store.
