A man armed with a rifle entered Congress Mini Mart in New Haven, Conn. and attempted to rob the store. At some point the thief left, then traveled to the nearby Nino’s Market convenience store and attempted to rob it.

Police have confirmed that the clerk was in compliance with Connecticut’s gun laws.
