Clerk halts robbery, KHOU, Houston, Texas 05/11/13, KTRK, Houston, Texas 05/12/13
A masked and armed robber entered the Alexander Food Store in Baytown, Texas and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk asked the criminal to lower his weapon, but the attacker refused, prompting the clerk to retrieve a gun and fire at the criminal, striking him at least once in the stomach and causing him to flee. The robber didn’t make it far, collapsing outside the front of the store, where he remained until police could arrive. The foiled robbery came following three robberies in Baytown the previous day. Local media noted that the reason the Alexander Food Store clerk was armed was due to a previous robbery at the store.
