The result you expect to happen when someone tries to rob a gun store with a knife.
The man who tried to rob a Carter’s Country in Southwest Houston was shot and killed by an employee.
“Before the man entered the gun shop, witnesses told police he entered a Suit Mart next door and tried to steal some items…
Leaving the Suit Mart empty-handed, police said the man then attempted to rob the gun shop where he was shot by an employee.
“Once he went there (the gun shop), he actually went behind the counter (and) started ruffling through the cash register,” HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said. “He was confronted by one of the employees, at that point, one of the employees felt in fear of their safety and fired two shots, at least one struck.””
There was reportedly a trail of blood outside of the store, leading to where the suspect collapsed.
He was taken to the hospital where he died.
