This Florida security guard is an absolute here!!! A man wearing a Devil mask was trying to enter a strip club. Police in Tampa say "dozens of lives" were saved by alert security guards at a gentleman's club who disarmed a man wearing a mask who was trying to get in.

A video was released by the Tampa Police Department on Tuesday, a man can be seen walking toward the door of the club, Mons Venus, early Sunday morning wearing a red "devil mask." He wielded a flashlight in one hand and a fully loaded 9 mm handgun in the other, according to police. 

The security guard, Manuel Resto, said he noticed the red devil mask as the man was headed toward the door. Resto said he then saw the man point the gun toward the door, and that is when he knew he had to stop him from entering the club to hurt or kill anybody! There was a struggle and one gun shot hit the door during it. Two other security guards helped Resto restrain the suspect, identified by police as 44-year-old Michael Rudman, and keep him pinned to the ground until authorities arrived.

Upon arriving at the scene, police allegedly found two fully loaded magazines in the suspect's pocket, along with additional ammunition, nine knives and firearm accessories in his pickup truck, which was parked near the club, authorities said.

Roughly 200 people were inside the venue at the time of the incident, which occurred around 1:15 a.m., police said. No one inside was injured.
