One family in Texas has found out through experience that it pays to always be ready to exercise your 2nd amendment rights. Even in times of grieving.
The family had just gotten home from a wake, so it was already a difficult time. But in the following minutes their own lives would soon be in danger. Three of the four family members had already walked into the house. The fourth apparently took a little longer when suddenly a masked gunman approached him with a gun and demanded money.
The quick thinking of the would-be-victim prompted him to speak loudly when talking to the gunman to get the attention of his 3 other family members who just went inside the house. According to ABC News,
“In a very loud voice he was yelling back, don’t shoot me, don’t shoot me,” Vargas recalled.
Vargas tells us a retired federal agent was among those who had just returned home. Investigators say he pulled out a weapon and the suspect fired on him as he came back outside. He returned fire, hitting the suspect at least twice, according to authorities. The wounded suspect then fled in a waiting getaway car.
Without a good guy with a gun in this situation who knows how things would have ended. But because the good guy had a gun in this case we have a safe family, and a criminal with gun shot wounds which allowed to police to catch up to him
The police said a man matching the suspect’s description showed up at an area hospital suffering from gunshot wounds later that evening. He is being questioned by police.
The police are also saying that they believe 3 suspects were involved and they have been linked to other crimes in the community. Watch the news video below:
