    EDINBURG -- The clerk warned Alejandro Salinas about the suspicious men who had been hanging out in front of the convenience store for the past hour.

    He told Salinas to be careful as he went back out to his Chevrolet Z-71 pickup truck, that he had just filled at the Aziz Convenience Store about 11 a.m. Saturday.

    Salinas walked out to his truck and hopped in.

    But before he could close the door, 18-year-old Hector Severo Ramos was holding a .25-caliber pistol at Salinas' neck, said Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño.

    "He says ‘Get out of the truck. I'm going to take it and I'm going to kill you," Treviño said of Ramos.

    Salinas told the gunman to calm down; they could work things out.

    Then he pushed Ramos' pistol away, pulled out his own pistol and fired two 9 mm bullets into Ramos' chest.

    Ramos fired once into the air and his arms fell onto Salinas.

    The two men tumbled to the pavement as blood spilled from Ramos' chest.

    Three men who were with Ramos took off from the convenience store at Texas Highway 107 and Alamo Road in a brown Chevrolet Impala, deputies said.

    Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene and emergency crews rushed Ramos to McAllen Medical Center, where he died upon arrival.

    Salinas had a license to carry a concealed firearm and a clean criminal record, Treviño said.

    Ramos, a U.S. citizen who lived in South Alamo, had been arrested for giving a false report to a police officer, aggravated robbery, theft and engaging in organized criminal activity, Treviño said.

    Ramos may have been involved with a local gang or attempting to start a new one, Treviño said.

    Deputies continue to look for the three men who were with Ramos before he was shot. They could face murder and aggravated robbery charges, Treviño said.

    "If they fled knowing (Ramos) was dying at the scene and they were all responsible for the commission of this felony, then they could be held liable for that," Treviño said.

    Meanwhile, the sheriff said he would likely not pursue criminal charges against Salinas, who told deputies he killed Ramos in self-defense.

    "This is not a murder," Treviño said. "This is a justifiable homicide.".

    Good for Mr Salinas. Hope against hope the other thugs get some religion after seeing the wages of sin is death.

    Hector Ramos is no longer a repeat offender, now he's a dead offender...great move for the taxpayers...

    At least now the Tax Payers don't have to pay to house, feed, and cloth him in jail. Good shooting Mr. Salinas.

    Good job on Mr Salinas part. Not sure I'd want to take on someone with a pistol to my throat. Then again, Ramos had said he was going to kill him, he may have figured if he was going to die, he would go out fighting.

    I wondered the same thing. He shoved it away, then shot his own? Obviously it worked. Good shoot!

    Not sure I want to get shot in the neck, even with a .25.
    Sever an artery, nick the spinal cord...could have been VERY, VERY bad.

    Good for Mr. Salinas.

    Don't kid yourself. While working as a EMT in Detroit, I was once a witness in a murder case where three people were all killed with a single .25 auto (one magazine) in an apparent drug deal that went bad. Two died at the scene, and another later in the hospital. While I would not personally carry something that small, I've seen what they will do, and it's no joke.
