A would-be robber ran off from a donut shop with a bullet wound after the business' owner pulled out his own gun, police said.

Las Vegas Metro police said the attempted holdup happened about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Donut Hut, located in the 3200 block of East Desert Inn Road.

According to police, an unarmed man tried to rob the business and demanded money from two customers. The shop's owner, Sothy Seang, had his girlfriend retrieve a gun they keep at the business.

Police said a struggle ensued over the gun, and the man, identified as Alfonso Montellano, 32, of Corona, CA, was shot in the abdomen.

Police later learned Montellano drove himself to University Medical Center for treatment. He is facing charges of robbery and burglary. He has been booked into Clark County Detention Center.
