Police say the would-be robber walked up to the wold-be victim Saturday morning just after 5:00 a.m. in the 1900 block of Burgundy Street and demanded money.  The video shows the robber pointing a shotgun at the victim's face at close range.  

The video shows the victim then yanking the shotgun away from the robber and giving chase.  According to police, the victim was approached moments later by two black males in a black four door sedan.  The victim told police that the driver of the car said, "give me my gun back and I’ll give you your phone that you dropped."  

An NOPD spokesman says the intended victim declined to return the shotgun back to the robber, but instead used the weapon to strike and knock out the rear windshied of the vehicle.  Police say the two suspects fled on Frenchmen to St. Claude and then to parts unknown.
