Shop Employee Shoots And Kills Masked Robber, Two Other Suspects Leave Their Buddy To Die

HOUSTON, TEXAS — A smoke shop employee fought back against three armed and masked robbers early Tuesday morning during an attempted robbery.

The entire ordeal lasted less than 30 seconds, but seemed like an eternity.

“They pulled in. They made a U-turn and they parked right there and he heard them yelling, ‘Go, go, go,'” said the store owner, who didn’t want to be identified. “When they opened the door, they had their mask on and everything.”

When the employee found himself face to face with the three armed robbers, his instincts kicked in immediately. He noticed the men before they even came into the shop and when they finally entered, they didn’t make it far.

The employee drew his firearm as the men came into the shop and as soon as one of the armed suspects started to point a firearm at him, the employee started to shoot.

“They ran in. They stepped two yards into the store and he discharged his weapon hitting the guy, And the guy stumbled out,” the store owner added.

Police say the suspect who was shot tried to get away, but collapsed in the parking lot. He died at the scene from his injuries. The other two suspects are on the run.

Some friends they are. . .leaving their buddy to die in the parking lot.

The employee’s situational awareness seems to be the important aspect of this successful self-defense shooting. Had he not noticed the men before they opened the door, they might have had the upper hand upon entering.
