    Cameras inside a New Hampshire pizza shop captured an armed robbery over the weekend. Now, one of the employees is talking about those terrifying moments, and how he feels after literally dodging a bullet.

    Aaron Fuller has been a cook with Papa Jay's Pizza Shop in Dover for more than 10 years.

    On Saturday night, he was dealing with the typical dinner rush, when two men barged in, demanding more than just a slice of pizza.

    "I turned around and saw a gun," Fuller said.

    The surveillance video shows one man in a maroon hooded sweatshirt waving around a gun, the other in black leather jacket.

    Fuller can be seen continuing to work, unfazed by what's happening.

    "For the first minute, I totally thought it was a goof, someone pulling a prank," Fuller said Monday.

    When the suspects start smashing the cash register, Fuller realizes it's no prank, and he crouches down behind the center counter with the two other employees.

    "The guy with the gun said, 'time's up,' and they both ran out the door," Fuller recalled.

    What the surveillance cameras didn't capture is what happened outside the pizza shop. Fuller chased the suspects down the street until one of them turned around and fired that weapon.

    "That's when I decided it was game over," Fuller said.

    Two days later, Fuller admits chasing armed intruders wasn't the smartest thing he has ever done.

    "You never think about your family or your kid or something like this until afterward," he said. "It was stupid."

    As police continue searching for the suspects, it's back to business as usual at Papa Jay's, but the owner says his employees are shaken up.

    "Especially the 16-year-old girl, this is her first job," said Jason Parker. "You come to work you're supposed to feel safe, they shouldn't be dealing with something like this."

    As for Fuller, he says he feels lucky. He's got one heck of a story, but that doesn't mean he or his family is proud of it.

    "My son scolded me more than the cops did, I will tell you that," Fuller said.

    Parker says a new register and computer monitor will cost him upwards of $800 and that doesn't include the undisclosed amount of cash the suspects stole.
