“The armed customer, described by Houston police as a white or Hispanic male, fired at least 9 shots at the suspect who dropped to the ground and died.”
An armed robber at a taco restaurant in Houston, Texas got more than he bargained for this week when an armed customer took him down with multiple shots.
Crime is still a big problem in much of the country, and people have had it. Until our leaders try to address the problem, they should expect to see more of this.
FOX News has details:
Houston armed robbery suspect shot dead by armed customer, police looking to question shooter
Police in Texas are looking to question a man who was seen on surveillance video shooting and killing an armed suspect attempting to rob a Houston taqueria.
Houston police are asking for the public’s help to find a man who was seen on video, inside Ranchito #4 Taqueria in southwest Houston, shooting and killing an armed robber after the suspect entered the store and demanded valuables from customers at gunpoint.
In a Friday press release, Houston police say charges have not been filed against the man who fled but police want to speak to him about “his role in the shooting.”
The video and witness reports show the suspect, who police say was in his 20s, wearing a black ski mask entering the restaurant and pointing his pistol at patrons and demanding their money.
As the suspect was gathering money from patrons, the armed customer can be seen standing up as the suspect walks by him and firing his gun at the suspect multiple times.
The armed customer, described by Houston police as a white or Hispanic male, fired at least 9 shots at the suspect who dropped to the ground and died. The armed customer fired multiple shots, including one at the suspects head, after the suspect had dropped to the ground.
The armed customer actually took the money off the thief and returned it to other customers before leaving.
Here’s the video. Turn the sound on.

Police are looking for the man, but supposedly do not want to charge him with anything.
Houston Police want to speak this man, but he’s not charged with a crime. HPD says a gunman was robbing people at a taqueria on S. Gessner last night. During the robbery, this man shot and killed the suspect… collected the money, gave it back to the robbery victims, and left. pic.twitter.com/EABiMcUi8Q

Some reports claim that the robber’s gun wasn’t even a real firearm.
Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms explains why that doesn’t really matter:
It’s clear the robber intended for his victims to believe he had a real firearm, which means that the armed citizen in question had a legitimate fear of death or great bodily injury as long as the robber was waving his gun around. He might have been moving towards the door, but he also pointed his gun at the armed citizen’s head a split second before the gun owner drew his own pistol and fired.
Democrats want you disarmed.
This is a good reminder of why every American should reject that idea.
