    Ben Taub doctor shot during robbery near grocery

    A doctor at Ben Taub General Hospital was shot Thursday evening during an apparent robbery outside a supermarket near the Texas Medical Center, Houston police said.

    The doctor, who has not been identified, was shot about 6:30 p.m. as she struggled with an attacker in the parking lot of a Kroger on Old Spanish Trail at Cambridge, officers at the scene said.

    She had just left the grocery and had gotten into her car when the gunman attacked. Police said he tried to pull her out of the car then began firing.

    One of the bullets shattered a passenger window of the woman's car. Her lab coat, stained with blood, remained on the driver's seat after she was taken to the hospital.

    An off-duty Harris County deputy constable who was working a part-time security job at the grocery arrested the man. He was carrying the gun believed to have been used in the shooting, police said.

    He was in handcuffs when Houston police crime scene specialists tested his hands for gunpowder residue.

    The doctor was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital, where her condition wasn't known.

    Hope she is going to recover. Hopefully this will motivate more to legally conceal and carry firearms. Every day more people carry. One person at a time, one day at a time, we are taking our country back from the forces of evil. That is the silver lining in this kind of encounter.

    The problem is that practically all the medical facilities including the one where she works at prohibits carry concealed. This needs to change as more of them are now targets.

    Hopefully those that enact laws over in Disneyland on The Potomac,
    will realize this, and keep the hounds of the U.N. and the NWO at bay, and in check
