Texas Right-To-Carry Permit Holder Stops Vehicular Attack

posted on May 28, 2015

A Texas concealed handgun licensee used his firearm in a Bellmead, Texas, Wal-Mart parking lot to stop a man from running him down with a vehicle Saturday.

After witnessing a man stealing tools from a truck, the man called police and approached the thief, who then started putting tools back into the truck where he had stolen them. Upon learning that police were on their way, the burglar got into his own vehicle and threatened to back up over the witness, who fired a single shot through the vehicle's back window, stopping the attack.

Neither the burglar nor the witness was injured in the event. The burglar now faces charges of Burglary of a Motor Vehicle, as well as Assault With a Deadly Weapon for his attempt to hit the witness.
