Was it bravery or stupidity after someone at a convenience store tackles an armed robber?

A masked man, armed with a loaded gun walks into the Spokane store.

He demands cash, and before he can escape, another guy comes out of nowhere and takes him down.  It was the clerk’s brother.

One shot was fired, but no one was hit.

The thief was arrested and is now facing charges.
