The robbery was caught on surveillance cameras.

An 11-year-old boy attempted to rob a California gas station at gunpoint in broad daylight and the whole thing was caught on camera.

The boy rushed in demanding money, but the cashier screamed and scared him off.

Another camera from outside shows the boy roll up on a skateboard and pacing before he made his move.

Police are trying to find out how the boy got a gun, and say his parents could face charges if it belongs to them.
