The Houston Chronicle reports on an attempt to rob a bar by four armed men in Harris County. The robbery was foiled by a customer who was carrying. He fatally shot two of the robbers who fired at least three rounds at him.
O’Donnell, who was not there at the time of the incident, said a head bartender and waitress were closing up for the night when two men walked into the bar and demanded everyone get down on the floor. Two other men “lingered at the bar door,” she said.
That’s when a customer at the bar pulled his own gun and started shooting at the men, she said. The attempted robbers fired at least three rounds inside the bar, said O’Donnell.
“That man was a hero,” said O’Donnell. “We could have had some bodies.”
The customer fled the scene and has not been located by police. As Vox Popoli noted on his blog, four robbers were not enough to guarantee a successful robbery.
