When a man entered Lisa’s Beer and Wine with a gun around 9 p.m. and demanded money, the store clerk complied. He handed over small bills from the cash register, but the robber was not satisfied and ordered the clerk to open the safe. He then ordered the clerk to kneel on the ground while he took cigarettes from the store shelves. That is when the store clerk took action. He drew a firearm and fired, striking the robber in the hand. The robber dropped his weapon and fled the scene with cash. The store clerk remained unharmed. (Dallas News, Dallas, Texas, 4/22/14)
