An east Dallas convenience store owner fought off two armed robbers Tuesday night, killing one and sending the other fleeing.
According to local media reports, Bunthan Te, owner of the Shop-N-Go at Mounger Boulevard and Columbia Avenue, was confronted by two masked gunmen at about 10 p.m. One held his wife at gunpoint while the other jumped over the counter.
Te grabbed his own gun and ran for the cooler section, where he had a shootout with one suspect. When his wife broke free from the other robber, Te also fired at that suspect, causing him to flee. One armed robber died in the parking lot, while the second and a getaway car driver have not yet been found.
