    Confrontation at Houston Bar ends in Homicide

    http://www.click2houston.com/news/14918554/detail.html

    HOUSTON -- A southeast Houston bar owner shot and killed a man, police said, in self-defense, KPRC Local 2 reported Monday.

    Officials said the shooting happened at Henry's Bar on North 80th at Avenue B at about 11 p.m. Sunday.

    Police said a man walked into a bar and flashed a gun. When the owner asked him to leave, the man went outside.


    "Outside the bar, there was another confrontation. He pointed the gun and the bar owner shot him and it appears to be self-defense at this time," said Sgt. E. Lorenzana with the Houston Police Department.

    The man was shot in the head and died in the parking lot. His name was not released.

    No charges have been filed against the owner.


    Bravo!

    The article make no mention of it but wonder if the famous line Alcohol was involved came into play since it was a bar. There is a reason bar employees are not allowed to drink on the job at least in SC.

    Small point, your title to the thread leads me to believe there was a murder when there were no charges filed.

    Man walks into a bar. Flashes a gun. Gets killed by owner. The End.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    Homicide does not equal murder, all cases where a person is killed by another person is a homicide. some homidides are murder some are self defence.

    To many people equate homicide with murder.

    My bad...you are correct...in Wiki defense:

    "refers to the act of killing another human being.[1] It can also describe a person who has committed such an act, though this use is rare in modern English. Although homicide does not define an illegal act necessarily, sometimes it is used synonymously with "murder."

    Reminds me a little of a guy I used to know and work with for about a year. 2+ years ago he suddenly started talking about guns and asked if I knew about them ... he just got a Ruger semi and didn't know how to use it ... Oh Boy.

    He was already carrying it wo permit and into bars .. his second job was manager-cd producer etc for a hip-hop group (yeah it was really hip hop). He was a 45 year old fool.

    He was going to do what he was going to do anyway SO we went to the range, gave him the basics, WA carry law ... brandishing, fed buildings, schools, beer joints, traianing advice, how-where to get a permit, HG common sense AND "Gravest Extreme'.

    About 2-3 months later he was arrested in a bar ... while semi drunk and totally stupid he pulled it on his girl friend's father and threatened him. Off to jail and haven't seen or cared since....fired too.
