Business Owner Shoots Robber

posted on June 6, 2015

James Avant, the owner of a Kwik Kash in Odessa, Texas, must have looked like an easy mark as he sat in his vehicle in the parking lot, preparing to take a money bag inside the store. When he got out, a man allegedly sprayed him with pepper spray and punched him repeatedly before taking the bag and attempting to escape on a bicycle. Avant pursued on foot, at which point the suspect pulled out a gun and shot at him. Avant drew his own pistol and returned fire, killing his attacker.

Police have not filed charges against Avant, and the district attorney commented that charges were unlikely. Everyone appears to recognize that Avant acted within his rights, and perhaps the message will get out that the Odessa Kwik Kash is no soft target.
