Another example of a gun in the right hands saving lives.

Usman Seth was minding his family’s convenience store on Scranton Street in southeast Houston when a man barged in just after 10 p.m. Friday.

He had a shotgun in hand, and demanded money.

Seth said the gunman first threatened his older sister at the cash register.


Seth shot the would-be robber in the leg, but the man, dressed in black and wearing a mask, fired back at them.

“He kept threatening us,” Seth said.

He said he kept shooting at the man, who by then had moved to the back of the store beside a Dr Pepper cooler, wounding him again and eventually killing him.

I would also note that it took several shots to finally stop the crook. For those who gripe about how many shots were fired in a self-defense situation or complain that “he could have just wounded him,” look at what it took to finally stop the threat.
