Clerk Shoots 2 Males Who Attempted to Rob Store
HOUSTON -- A clerk defends himself and his workplace when he shoots two males who tried to rob his store.
The clerk was in the process of closing the 786 Food Store at the 100 block of Aldine Bender Road at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday when the two would-be robbers entered the building with guns.
The two males demanded money from the clerk and removed one gun from the counter that the clerk had. One of the males held the gun from the counter against the clerk's head, according to detectives.
The clerk reached for the gun on his belt and shot one of the suspects twice. As the other male approached, the clerk shot him once.
Both of the would-be robbers ran to the BMW they arrived in and drove a few blocks away. The suspects knocked on the door of home to get medical attention. They were both taken to Ben Taub General Hospital in stable condition.
