“Bigger” gun wins out over fake one

Two masked men went into a store in the 8800 block of Ninth Avenue Southwest at 10 p.m. Saturday and pointed a gun at the clerk, demanding money, Seattle police report.

The clerk recognized that the gun the suspects were using was a fake, so he reached down and brought up his own gun, telling the would-be robbers that his gun was “bigger.”

Police say the suspects ran out of the store and quickly left in their car.
