HOUSTON — A Houston jewelry store owner shot and killed three armed men who tried to rob his business on Thursday, police said.

Two men were in an east Houston jewelry store Thursday afternoon pretending to be customers when a third man burst into the store and stated, “This is a robbery,” said Houston police spokesman Kese Smith.

All three men then pulled out pistols, tied up the store owner’s wife and took her to a back room, Smith said.

As they were trying to tie up the store owner, he took out a handgun from his waistband and fatally shot one of the suspects, Smith said. The store owner then grabbed a shotgun and shot and killed the two other suspects in an ensuring gunbattle, Smith said.

The store owner was shot in the stomach and taken to a Houston hospital, where he was undergoing surgery. His wife was unharmed, Smith said.

The names of the three suspects and the 52-year-old store owner were not immediately released by authorities.

Police are looking for a fourth suspect who may have been the getaway driver and was last seen driving a brown or gold colored vehicle.


This was one brave store owner. Short of him being injured I would have to say this robbery had a happy ending. I for one would like to see all arm robberies and especially home invasion end with saving us tax payers a little money by simply killing these thugs. Crime is clearly on the rise here in Obamaville. Now is the time to plan to protect you and yours ...
