Houston: CHPer locked in during robbery, shots fired, clerk dead
Unidentified Store Clerk, Shot Either by Robbers or Man with Concealed Handgun, Bayou Body Count No. 61 - Houston News - Hair Balls
Apparently another news source states the robbers fired first, per a commenter to this news item.
A clerk at the Dollar General store ... was shot and killed last night, and police say they are unsure if the fatal shot came from robbers or the customer with a Concealed Handgun License who also opened fire.
The store was just closing at 10 p.m. when two men entered and began demanding money from the clerk.
"One of two customers inside the store attempted to leave and noticed the suspects had locked the door," HPD says. "The male customer, who has a concealed handgun license, pulled out his weapon and exchanged gunfire with the suspects. During the exchange of gunfire, the female victim was struck and killed."
The two men... "black males," then "fled the scene in the customer's rented vehicle, a 2012 four-door Toyota Camry with Louisiana license plates N238302."
There was also another robbery of a Dollar General the same day in the Houston area where the clerks were tied up.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
