Caught on video: Fleeing man narrowly escapes tragedy when suspect’s gun fails to fire

Call it fate, divine intervention, or a miracle, but one Las Vegas man is likely calling it the luckiest moment of his life.

On Sunday, an armed suspect approached the unnamed victim who was reportedly parking in a garage and demanded the man’s property. Video captured the suspect running across the street with the suspect following closely on his heels. It’s then the attempted robber pulled out a firearm and pointed it at the fleeing man. However, in a twist of fate, the gun jammed, rendering it useless.

Once he realized that his one piece of leverage wasn’t going to work, police say the suspect retreated to a vehicle and fled the scene. They are asking the public to help identify the suspect so he can be arrested.

Watch the harrowing video:

Law enforcement described the suspect’s vehicle as being a newer-model sedan, black, with tinted windows and black wheels.
