Gun Shop Employee Facing Charges After Shooting Fleeing Suspect In The Back


When a threat is not a threat, it’s not a threat. It’s. Not. A. Threat. As armed citizens, that means the end of a self-defensive situation, and we can’t continue on and play the role of police.

A surveillance video from a gun store has become critical evidence against an employee who claimed he acted in self-defense when he shot a fleeing suspect in the back in mid-2022.

The incident occurred at Carter’s Country store in Houston, located at 11878 South Wilcrest Drive. On June 21, 2022, 58-year-old store employee Mark Winger shot and killed 36-year-old Terry Evans, Jr. Winger is now facing murder charges.

The grand jury indictment, issued on October 5, states that Mark Winger “unlawfully, intentionally, and knowingly” caused the death of Terry Evans by shooting him with a firearm on June 21, 2022.

The indictment further specifies that Winger intended to inflict serious harm on Evans and caused his death by carrying out an act — the shooting — that posed a significant threat to human life.
