    Holy Cow. An incredible ordeal, and a man who was prepared. Four against one and he killed three. Also used two different weapons.

    I'm glad he'll survive and that his wife was completely uninjured!

    Great outcome, but too bad one got away. I'm guessing they'll end up catching the one who got away. We hope so, anyway!

    Great Job! That Texan had some guts.

    Im going to guess illegals. This just sounds like Mexico's crime again carrying over. Hope I'm wrong.

    When he recuperates maybe that school board in FLA could offer him a job as their new Director of Security.

    Good on him, outstanding shooting.

    Excellent job by the owner. I don't think he could afford the pay cut to go to work for the school board.

    W O W ! He did as good a job as was possible under the circumstances. Hit twice, 3:1 odds, CQB, and he prevailed - saved his wife and stopped the attack the best way he could. I hope his injuries don't leave him crippled and he is able to get his mind around what happened to him and what he had to do to defend himself and his wife. Psychological effects will be pretty tough. It will help a lot that his wife was uninjured.

    He clearly has a combat mindset - reminds me of Lance Thomas - hopefully this guy will do what Lance did and put guns all along his counter where he can get at them quickly. Be hard to do that with a shotgun though, and he certainly showed he knows how to handle one of those.

    Criminals need to understand that failures in the victim selection process can be hazardous to your health.

    Incredible odds, quick action, and a huge set...congrats to this store owner.
    Thankfully, he's going to be O.K. and three more dirtbags will rob no more.

    Hope that the store owner soon recovers. The man did a super job in putting down three violent predators.

    Three more dirt bags taking their dirt naps. Glad the shop owner will be ok.

    What's with the guy that is all emotional and bear hugging that poor officer? LOL They didn't say who he was. He looked a lot more upset than the shop owner's wife. LOL Poor officer!

    With that many BGs at one time, you have to wonder if it was gang-related.
    And if so, it's likely nowhere near over for this man, his family and business.
    I wish him well. He's tough. He's a fighter. Good for him.

    Lance Thomas killed a couple of gang bangers who tried to rob him. When their Homie's retaliated, he killed them too!
