Off-Duty Deputy, Wife Fight Off Convenience Store Robbers

posted on December 15, 2016

Three Porter, Texas, robbers who thought a parking lot heist last Saturday night would net them some quick cash and an easy escape were foiled when their targets turned out to be carrying guns and knew how to use them. 

An off-duty deputy—a 20-year veteran of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department—had stopped at the Sumner Hills Food Mart to buy ice for a hunting trip. As he was loading the ice into the back of his truck, his wife—still inside the vehicle—heard a commotion. When she turned and saw two men hitting her husband in the head and jaw, she grabbed her handgun, exited the truck and shot at the suspects, distracting them long enough to allow her husband to pull out his own gun and fire at them. Clearly outgunned, the suspects fled to a waiting pick-up. 

The suspects remain at large, and it’s unknown whether any of them were injured in the fracas. The deputy was transported to a local hospital with broken teeth and facial injuries; his wife was unharmed.
