Working in pairs for protection, the two brothers were operating the Gulfway Drive store around 10 p.m. Sunday, when an armed suspect entered the business demanding money, Port Arthur Police detective Rodney Harrision said in a phone interview Monday.Putting a stop to it included shooting the goblin multiple times with his own firearm.
“One of the clerks was in a parked car right by the front door when he saw the robbery and went to put a stop to it.” Harrison said.
The injured man is not expected to survive. If he does survive, he will face aggravated robbery charges.
The brothers were unharmed, but the DA still has to decide if charges will be filed. Unharmed, but not unaffected.
The two brothers were not injured during Sunday’s incident, but suffered from the shock of being forced to use deadly force, Harrison said.I suppose turning things over to the DA may be SOP, because this police officer seems to believe in self-defense. And who would not defend a brother, sister, mother, father, child, etc?
Self-defense (or defense of family) is a human right.
