An employee at a Sydney Domino’s store is being hailed for extraordinary bravery, after he walked to a police station after being shot in the chest during a robbery.
Anand Singh, who’s only 21, was reportedly shot after wrestling with an armed man in order to protect younger fellow employees.

Police say Singh was confronted by the armed man at his place of work in the western Sydney suburb of Wentworthville at about 1:45 this morning. The man made demands for money, then shot Singh in the chest and hand during a confrontation.
Incredibly, Singh then walked with the help of another worker through the Wentworthville train station to the police station 450m away.
Inspector Matthew Hyde told reporters today, “It’s quite amazing in the fact that he was able to walk and seek assistance. He’s an extremely brave young person.”
Considering I lie down and wait for death when I get a paper cut, I’d agree with that assessment: Anand Singh is one brave bloke.
He’s in a serious but stable condition in Westmead Hospital. Police are looking for the guy who shot him, who’s been described as of Caucasian appearance, in his mid-20s with a slim build and wearing a dark coloured hoodie.
Get well soon, Anand.Source: News.com.au
