A woman who brandished a pistol inside a Dunedin dairy this week hot-footed it from the shop within seconds of entering.
Police were called to the On The Spot Halfway Bush Convenience Store about 7.30am on Monday.
Footage has emerged showing a woman entering the store and brandishing a weapon, which the storekeeper described as "looking like a pistol", then bolting almost immediately.
Meanwhile, the owner fled into the adjoining flat, locked the door and called for his family to phone the police.
