Two Pennsylvania teen boys attempt to rob gun shop at gunpoint

Two teen boys, ages 15 and 17, entered the Suburban Armory gun shop in Collingdale, Pennsylvania, brandished a handgun, and attempted to rob the store.

The shop owner pulled out his own gun and fired a shot.  The shot missed the boys, but the boys fled.  They were later captured.

From an article:
Two juveniles, ages 15 and 17, are in police custody and will be charged as adults with multiple offenses, including robbery, possessing an instrument of crime, reckless endangerment and possession of a controlled substance, Police Chief Robert Adams said. 
According to Adams, officers responded to a silent alarm at the business in the 1000 block of MacDade Boulevard at about 1:40 p.m. 
The owner reportedly told police that two black males entered the store wearing “Muslim-type clothing,” one of whom pointed a silver handgun at him as they announced the robbery. 
The incident was captured on video, according to Adams.
The article didn't say how the boys got their gun.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
