Wise Adage: Never Bring A Machete To A Gun Fight

posted on November 18, 2016

A store clerk was closing his Sherman, Texas, mom-and-pop grocery store Wednesday night, after having forcibly removed a disorderly customer earlier in the day. Walking to his car, he heard someone yelling, and turned to see the same disruptive customer pulling something from his waistband. 

Thinking the attacker had a gun, the clerk ran down an alleyway, where he could see the suspect was charging at him with a machete. The clerk had time to pull his gun and shoot the attacker, stopping him in his tracks. The victim then returned to the store and called police, telling dispatchers the suspect had fled on foot. 

Almost immediately, a nearby apartment resident called requesting an ambulance for a man with a gunshot wound to the upper torso. The suspect faces charges for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but due to his medical condition no arrest has been made.
