It kind of looks staged.
Yeah, he starts running away the instant the guy bats the gun with his arm.
How long would you stick around if someone was pointing a gun at you?
He started running before it was even pointed at him. And he didn't even struggle to hold onto it.
Edit: actually, watching again, the gun is never pointed at him - the victim didn't turn it around after he grabbed it. But the robber did try to hold onto it for a second, with one hand, as he was running away (like a relay race baton hand-off as Elinda noted). Edited, May 1st 2013 10:55am by trickybeck
