TACOMA, WA (CNN) - A dramatic and chilling video shows a Washington State convenience store clerk begging for his life -- then struggling with an armed robber.

That's the clerk you see wearing a black baseball cap in this surveillance video. Police say this video shows the store being robbed for the second time in a week -- apparently by the same gunman.

At first, the clerk begs the robber not to shoot. But then he decides to risk it all and tries to take the gun away.

The robber got away with a small amount of cash. Another store employee says the clerk quit his job after the second hold-up.
