TEXAS JUSTICE ➠ Robbery Victim Reached Into Her Purse For Money ➠ Came Out With A SURPRISE!
A Texas woman’s actions reaffirmed two principles when a man attempted to rob her Friday night:
Never bring a knife to a gun fight, and don’t mess with Texas women.
A woman, in her mid-30s and described by law enforcement as “cool as a cucumber” pulled into an Exxon service station in northeast Harris County about 6 p.m, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Before she was able to exit her vehicle, the would-be robber got into the passenger seat, brandished a knife and demanded her money.
She told the man she’d comply and slipped her hand into her purse. But instead of coming out a wallet, her hand held a gun.
“She shoots him one time in the left shoulder,” Deputy Thomas Gilliland told the Chronicle.
That was all the thief needed. He flung open the passenger-side door and skedaddled from the scene. He was found a quarter-mile away where he’d collapsed due to blood loss.
He was flown by helicopter to a local hospital and is now listed in stable condition. He’s also facing an aggravated robbery charge.
The woman is a licensed concealed carrier. Although her actions will be referred to a grand jury as a matter of course, it’s not expected she will face any charges. More
