A man fought off two armed robbers inside his store in Logan Square, and it was all caught on surveillance video.

It happened Tuesday evening at the store owned by 62-year-old Luis Quizhpe.

One of the thieves pointed a gun at Quizhpe’s brother in law before aiming at him and demanding cash.

That’s when Quizhpe fought back with a baseball bat.

The robber fired nine shots, hitting Quizhpe once in the thigh, narrowly missing a major artery.

Police are looking for the thieves.

One of them was shot in the leg and limped out of the store.
