    abc13.com: Man fights back against would-be robber 2/07/08

    A would-be robber was shot and killed by the person he was trying to rob in the parking lot of a grocery store in southeast Houston.

    Investigators told Eyewitness News the would-be robber had the tables turned on him when the person he was trying to rob pulled out his own gun and shot the man.

    It was just after 10pm last night when the victim told police he pulled into the parking lot at the H-E-B in the Gulfgate shopping center on Winkler near the Gulf Freeway. Tha'ts when a man walked up to his car and pointed a gun at him. What the robber didn't know is the man had a gun and he retaliated with gunfire.

    "He had just parked and as he was about to get out the car, the guy came up to his door," said Sgt. Robert Odom with the Houston Police Department.

    "Do you know if he was going to carjack him?" we asked.

    "I don't know. He told him to get back in. I don't know what he was planning to do at that point, if he was planning on taking the truck or if he was just going to rob him," said Sgt. Odom.

    The would-be robber was shot several times. He tried to get away by jumping into a car that was parked nearby. However, he fell out of the car and later died.

    Police did arrest the driver of the car and believe he may be the second suspect in the case.

    Nice story. Encouraging.
    It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.

    People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.

    Another one bites the dust,

    And another one's gone,

    Hey Hey !!

    Wonder if he got any type of road rash after he fell out of his car? Oh well, he will never feel it anyway. Hopefully, police will charge his buddy with murder, taking 2 off the streets. Castle and stand your ground laws sure are good, ain't they.
    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.
