In the small town of Traver, California (yes, that's a picture of the main street through town), a convenience store owner exchanged gunfire with at least two armed robbers Tuesday night.
The two robbers, one armed with a handgun entered the store and ordered the clerk to the ground. The thugs then took an undetermined amount of money from the register. While the robbery was happening the store owner arrived, drew his weapon, and traded gunfire with the crooks. The thieves ran to a car and escaped.
