Woman Shoots Armed Robber

A Texas woman simply planned to fill her car up with gasoline when she pulled up to the pumps at an Exxon station in Crosby, Texas, on Friday evening. But a man with a knife had different ideas.

Before the concealed-carry permit holder could exit her car, the armed man climbed into the passenger seat, pulled out a knife and demanded her cash. She agreed and reached into her purse for the cash, but came out with her handgun instead.

The situation ended quickly when she shot the perpetrator once in the left shoulder. The armed robber stumbled out of the car and ran away down the road, collapsing about a quarter-mile away. According to media reports, the suspect is listed in stable condition and faces charges of aggravated robbery.
