Houston Jewelry Store Robber Shot, Killed By Clerk

posted on July 28, 2015

A jewelry store employee shot and killed a robber in southwest Houston Saturday, police say. When the robber attempted a hold-up at the Jade Jewelers on Westheimer and Wilcrest just after 4 p.m., the clerk shot the robber in the head. He was dead on arrival at the hospital. Police are seeking a woman seen running away from the scene for questioning.

Southwest Houston has seen its share of robberies lately—and honest citizens are fighting back.

Two weeks ago, just five miles away, when three masked gunmen went into the family-owned Super K convenience store on Beechnut Street and Jorine Drive, grabbed a customer to use as a human shield, and began pistol-whipping one of the store clerks, another employee shot and killed two of the three would-be robbers. Two weeks earlier, robbers had beaten a clerk at the same store so viciously that he’s been out of work ever since.
