A 49-year old Filipino-American store owner in Vallejo, California who was shot four times during a robbery last week is now on the road to recovery.


Marc Quidit was working with his sister at his Dollar Plus and Party Supplies store in Sonoma Boulevard when two armed men entered, according to a report by NBC Bay Area News.

Surveillance footage posted by KTVU News on Tuesday, February 16 shows Quidit vacuuming while his sister stood behind the counter. Two hooded and masked men entered with guns. Seconds later, one of the suspects opened fire at Quidit. The men then took off.

In a video shared on a GoFundMe page for Quidit, he can be seen taking steps at a hospital with some help from a walker and being able to walk up to 100 feet.
