The last thing a parent wants to do is let their child or children be involved in a situation with a gun. While the man in this week’s featured video couldn’t avoid that situation, he did the next best thing and saved his child.

Surveillance video from Detroit shows a silver SUV pull up to the store of a gas station. A man then exits the vehicle holding a gun.

Video footage from inside shows the suspect open the door and pull a gun and clip out of his waistband. He then points it at a man holding his 7-month-old.

The dad quickly swats the gun away and moves to the back of the store. Lucky for him, the gun appears to be jammed and the suspect leaves.
