    Good- store owner fights back

    Found this on another site.Good for the store owner!! Only a couple miles away from me.



    HOUSTON -- Being tied up did not stop a northwest Harris County storeowner from fighting back and killing a robbery suspect, KPRC Local 2 reported Wednesday.

    Harris County sheriff's investigators said a gunman entered Kenneth's PC cell phone store in the 12000 block of Veterans Memorial shortly after 1:30 p.m. and tied up the owner in the back.

    "The suspect was robbing the store when the owner was able to free himself, retrieve his own handgun and a gunfight ensued, and the suspect was killed at the scene," said Sgt. Ben Beall with the Harris County Sheriff's Department.

    No charges are expected to be filed against the owner, who was not injured.
    The storeowner had recently installed a surveillance system, but it had not yet been activated.

    Investigators said the robber is suspected in several other armed robberies in the area.

    Think how many innocent people will not be robbed, injured or killed by this particular goblin now that a citizen has ended his career.
