Houston Restaurant Owner Shoots And Kills Attacker

posted on February 7, 2017

The 70-year-old owner of J&S Bar-B-Que was locking up last Saturday night, ready to head home. That’s when two men jumped out from behind a large dumpster in an attempt to rob him. 

However, what the would-be robbers didn’t know is their victim had been robbed before and had decided to do something about it—that’s why he was carrying a gun. 

When the men attempted their ambush, the owner pulled his firearm and fired a couple of rounds at the suspects. One of the attackers was struck in the throat and chest, while the second robber fled the scene on foot. The suspect who was shot was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later succumbed to his gunshot wounds. Investigators report that they are still looking for the second suspect. 

Detectives say the restaurant owner should not face charges since this was a clear case of self-defense.
