MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

New surveillance video shows the intense moments, as a gas station clerk takes a shot at an armed robber. The bullet hit an innocent teenage girl.

It isn't even 30 seconds long...but it's chaotic. The robber, who police say is 26-year-old Joseph Soutullo, runs in to the Riverside Food Mart Wednesday night, and frantically waves his gun in one of the clerk's faces, demanding cash. 

In the video, as the bandit scoops up the money, the other clerk gets a gun, and turns the tables.

The robber looks behind him, then back at the clerks, to find a gun now in his face. He ducks, but the clerk fires. The thief sprints out of the store, dodging the bullet. Instead, it hits a 15-year-old girl who was standing outside. Thankfully, she's ok.

Seconds later, the clerks aren't sure if the coast is clear. They get up, then duck again, possibly because of more gun fire outside. Police say another person also fired a shot at the bandit. That bullet flew through two glass doors and into a TV inside a house across the street. 

Investigators say the person who fired that shot left the scene and has not been identified.

Soutullo is charged with first degree robbery. He was in court Friday and given a $60,000 bond.

A grand jury will decide if the clerk will be charged since police say his bullet injured the girl.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
