    Don't rob cell phone stores in Houston!

    There have been several robberies of Houston cell phone stores thwarted by armed owners/employees lately. I'm not sure what the attraction is between thugs and cell phone stores, but maybe after a few more of these, it will be a bit less attractive?

    A store owner fatally shot a would-be thief and the man's accomplice is on the run after the pair tried to rob a cellular phone store in northeast Houston.

    If it wasn't so blasted hot and humid in Texas, I'd have to consider moving there. Anywhere else, the robber would have been referred to as the victim.

    Excellent response, good shooting, getting both would have raised it to great shooting.
