Armed Robber Who Used Website To Lure Victims Is Shot By Homeowner

posted on May 13, 2017

“My future without her flashed before my eyes, and I thought, I cannot bear that thought. I had to do something.”

That was Ted Webster, speaking to Houston’s ABC-13 about the moment he shot a robber to save his wife. According to police, Webster’s daughter used the website “Offer Up” to purchase a phone. The seller, Joshua Daniels, was to meet them in a public place Friday, but after he was delayed the family agreed to meet at their home.

When Daniels arrived, he pointed a gun at Webster’s wife and demanded money. Webster went inside to get cash—but instead, he retrieved his revolver. When he returned, Daniels raised his gun and Webster reacted. “I saw that hand starting to come up and I had no choice,” he said. Daniels was shot in the stomach, but made a getaway with another suspect. He was apprehended miles away and transported to a hospital, where he died from his injuries. The accomplice was arrested.
