 A Restaurant Was Being Robbed By Sick Thugs, And One Customer Decided To Take Action….

Some criminals never anticipated what will happen on the day they will do their deed. While some encounter brave victims who fight back, others just encounter people whom they never expect to do something brave.

Yikes, that was gruesome who would think that your plan failed–in which you worked for months? And all of your efforts just turned ashes. You thought you end up in a luxurious life but ended up, worst, not just in a hospital bed but in a casket!

That’s just what happened at a Rachito Taqueria in Houston on Thursday night, shortly before 11:30 when a masked robber brandishing what appeared to be a firearm and taking wallets, cellphones, and cash from customers, as surveillance video from inside the restaurant showed.

Unfortunately, as the masked man appeared to be about to leave the store, one of those customers, however, was armed, and as the robber turned from him, he drew and fired his weapon “multiple times.”

In a tweet by the Houston police, the department acknowledged that the robbery suspect had been fatally shot. Police report that no one else in the restaurant was wounded, and it was later discovered that the robber was not actually armed. According to a police spokesman, KHOU identified only as Lt. Wilkens,The robbery suspect, he came into the store, he was wearing a mask, gloves. He had a plastic pistol, either an airsoft or possibly a little BB pistol.”

After the shooting, Police asked that the witnesses return so that they could be interviewed, as neither the masked assailant nor the man who shot him was known to the authorities, and the video showed the victims fleeing the scene.

Houston police said the gunman had taken the stolen money from the robber and returned it to his victims before departing the scene. They also released pictures of the shooter and his vehicle and asked the public to help identify and locate him Friday morning.

Although no criminal charges had yet been brought against the bystander who shot the robber, it was unknown whether he was carrying a gun legally or whether he would be held accountable for the occurrence.

The restaurant would reopen for business at about 7:00 today morning, according to employees who media characterized as still frightened by the incident.

The HPD statement said:

“Houston police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a male wanted for questioning in the fatal shooting of a robbery suspect at 6873 South Gessner Road about 11:30 p.m. on Thursday (Jan. 5).

Surveillance photos of the male and his vehicle, a 1970s or ’80s model pickup truck with no bed, are attached to this news release. Investigators want to speak with the man for his role in the shooting. No charges have been filed.

The identity of the deceased male suspect, believed to be in his 20s, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants M. Arrington, C. Duncan and Detectives S. Overstreet and L. Lovelace reported:

Officers were dispatched to a shooting call at the restaurant at the above address and observed an unknown black male in all black clothing, a black ski mask, and black gloves had been shot multiple times inside the business. Paramedics pronounced him deceased.

Witnesses told officers the suspect entered the restaurant and pointed a pistol at patrons as he demanded their money. As the suspect collected money from patrons, one of the patrons, described as a white or Hispanic male, produced a gun of his own and shot the suspect multiple times.  The shooter collected the stolen money from the suspect and returned the money to other patrons. He and other patrons (victims) then fled the scene.

Investigators are asking the shooter and the victims who left the scene to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 to provide statements regarding the incident.”
