When a gunman walked into an auto parts store in DeKalb County early Tuesday and forced two female employees to the back, police say the store's manager took action.  

Authorities stay the manager of the O'Reilly Auto Parts store on North Hairston Road, who happened to be on the phone with his brother via Bluetooth headset, struggled with the gunman.  His brother realized what was happening and hung up the phone, then called 911.  

Police arrived minutes later and arrested the gunman.  The store's manager was shaken up, but he is okay.

Authorities say the incident was not captured on surveillance video.
