Retired federal agent fights off robber, KHOU, Houston, Texas 09/16/13

Posted: 09.23.13 04:00 PM

A family was returning home from a funeral when a masked and armed robber approached them in the driveway of one of their houses in Harris County, Texas and demanded cash. The brother-in-law of the homeowner, a retired federal agent, responded to the threat by drawing a gun and firing at the thief, striking him twice and causing him to flee. The robber was captured a short time later after seeking treatment at a nearby hospital.The retired agent’s actions seem to have inspired at least one of his brother-in-law’s neighbors who told a local media outlet, “I might start taking gun classes for protection.” Investigators believe the thief may have been involved in other robberies earlier in the evening.*
