TWO shots were fired at a brave man who chased a robber.
The drama began when a gunman walked into the Spar shop on Leeds Road in Birstall at 8.15pm last Thursday.
The shop owner struggled with the raider, who fled.
A passer-by pursued the gunman down Leeds Road, on to South View and then Sunnymount Terrace.
The raider twice fired his gun at the man, but missed.
The gunman escaped in a Vauxhall Corsa, which went off towards Leeds.
He wore a mask covering his face and is between 5ft 6in and 5ft 8in tall.
Det Sgt Dave West, of Dewsbury CID, said: "This was a nasty and violent attack and the member of the public acted bravely in challenging the man.
"However, we would warn other people not to put themselves in a situation where they could face danger.
Always ring the police first."
Anyone with information should phone Dewsbury CID on 01924 431059.
