Guns Save Another Life By Killing A Thug
From the Houston Chronicle:
Usman Seth was minding his family's convenience store on Scranton Street in southeast Houston when a man barged in just after 10 p.m. Friday.
He had a shotgun in hand, and demanded money.
Seth said the gunman first threatened his older sister at the cash register.
"I wanted to make the threat go away," said Seth, a 20-year-old who often works at the store.
It wasn't the first time robbers have targeted the store, which the family opened about three years ago after moving from New York, he said.
His father passed him a 9 mm Smith & Wesson handgun, he said, and he began shooting.
"My family - their lives - were in my hands," Seth said afterward. "I had to protect them."
Seth shot the would-be robber in the leg, but the man, dressed in black and wearing a mask, fired back at them.
"He kept threatening us," Seth said.
He said he kept shooting at the man, who by then had moved to the back of the store beside a Dr Pepper cooler, wounding him again and eventually killing him.
When first responders arrived minutes later and took off the man's mask, Seth and his family recognized him as a young Hispanic man who had been in the store half an hour earlier. http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Store-owner-kills-would-be-robber-in-SE-Houston-5754139.php#photo-6861696
Luckily, the thug died so he is no longer a threat to this store or others, but his family, apparently thing this thug was actually good for society, keeps on making threat against the employees of the store.
