Houston Convenience Store Clerk Shoots Two Armed Robbers

posted on July 18, 2015

After a July 1 robbery resulted in a clerk being beaten so badly he still hasn’t returned to work, Super K convenience store owner Alden Tu and his brother, clerk Dien Tu, armed themselves to prevent being victimized again. “Everyone has guns in the store—it’s so dangerous, this kind of job,” Alden Tu told KTRK-13.

Unfortunately, last Monday—less than two weeks later—Tu’s southwest Houston Super K was hit again. While a getaway driver waited outside, three masked men entered the store, pistol-whipped the clerk on duty, then turned their attention to the register. When one of the men pulled a gun on him, Dien Tu, who was on break near the cooler, pulled out his gun and fired at the suspects, striking two. Police say after the suspects fled, they dumped the two injured suspects at a nearby apartment complex. They were taken to a local hospital, but reportedly did not survive.
