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?
NE Houston store owner fatally shoots robber
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.
Bryan Thorn, 34, was shot several times after he and and another man demanded money at a shop in the 4900 of Laura Koppe about 5 p.m. Wednesday.
The other robber fled after the shooting and police are searching for him. No description of the man has been released.
The 36-year-old store owner, whose name has not been released, was not injured.
The case will be referred to a grand jury without charges, police said.

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.
"Run for your life from the man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. So long as men live together on earth and need means to deal with one another-their only substitute, if they abandon money, is the muzzle of a gun."

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