An armed man who tried to rob the L&A Food Market at 2631 W. Vliet St. and fired a shot Tuesday afternoon found himself in a bit of a pickle, police said Wednesday.

Lugman Asad said he was in the back of the store eating his lunch about 2:50 p.m. when he came out and saw a man with a gun to the head of his son, Wisam, the store owner.

He said he grabbed the gun from the man who then fired a shot. But three or four customers were in the store at the time and they jumped on the suspect.

One customer hit the man with a pickle jar, police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said.

The man was arrested at the scene, she said.
