11 P.M. April 3, 2008. Houston Texas. Peter Quang Dan, owner and operator of the Colony Express Market, lay pistol whipped on the floor of his convenience store, wondering if he was enduring his last moments on Earth. Two vicious bandits quickly bagged all the money from his cash register. As the two men tried to exit the store, Dan grabbed a handgun he kept behind the counter, rose, and fired. He struck one robber in the head, killing him. The other criminal escaped.
When police arrived, they found the dead criminal with Dan's cash and a handgun. "Two suspects walked in the store and attempted to rob, or did rob the convenience store. The store clerk discharged a firearm and hit one of the suspects, and one suspect fled the scene," Sgt. J. Rubio said.
Dan was not seriously injured in the attack, but a grand jury will decide whether the killing was justified.
