Texas clerk dodges bullet, fatally shoots robbery suspect trying to pass counterfeit bill: police

A Texas corner store clerk shot and killed a robbery suspect Monday night who allegedly first fired at him after trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill, according to reports.

The Houston Police Department responded to calls about a robbery taking place at the Super Qwik Food Store off Fulton Street and Julia near the North Freeway around 10 p.m.

By the time officers arrived at the scene, a man had been shot and was transported to the hospital, where he later died.

“Luckily and fortunately for the convenience store clerk, he had a gun with him. He was able to return fire,” Houston Police Sgt. J. Horn told KHOU. “The suspect or the robber collapsed here at the store. He was transported to the hospital where he died later.”

The man, who has not been identified by authorities, allegedly tried to use a counterfeit $20 to make a purchase, but the clerk told him he could not accept the bill, KTRK reported.

Police said the robbery suspect then made his way into the clerk’s secured area, pulled out a gun and fired at him at least once within close range, narrowly missing him.

The clerk then pulled out a gun of his own and fired at the man, striking him multiple times.

“He’s very fortunate to be alive right now. We’re thinking that the bullet that the robber or suspect fired was only a few inches away from him,” Horn said.

Horn said the clerk was not harmed in the incident. No charges have been brought against him.

The suspect had a criminal record and was released on parole for a similar alleged robbery incident that happened last summer, KHOU reported, citing police records.

Maybe it played more realistically than it reads.
Considering the degree of stupidity out there in the wild and regularly displayed and built upon, never mind what passes for journalism, it probably did.

He was able to return fire. Best part of the entire post.

It was in Houston, and the now deaded suspect, had a criminal record.

Will there be any riots?

Please be safe everyone. It ain't going to do nothing but simply get worse.

Regards to all.

File this away for future reference.

Or as some teachers used to hint, "This WILL be on the test".

.........and in other news..........

The Federal Reserve has put out a statement today saying there is has been no formal printing of a George Floyd $20 bill certificate note as of this date and all notes found in circulation claiming such are to be considered counterfeit until the reserve begins its first print run on the new bill stock.

Officials have stated that the counterfeit "Georgie" as they are known on the street may end up having a collectors value exceeding its claimed print value in the near future which appears to have created a black market of criminal activity further the confusion of their formal release by the Fed into circulation.

The FBI and Law Enforcement officials were considering a nationwide task force in an attempt to remove the counterfeit notes currently in circulation but that initiative failed to pass for vote in the house due to a number of democrats out on recess in recognition of LGBTQ Pride month.

I dunno, seemed pretty real to me.

Lesson: Go to school so you don't end up clerking in a 24-hour store for the rest of your short life.
Hey I know a guy that had a third grade education and opened up a convenience store and rented videos he operated it for about 6 years bought another sold the other and then sold that one and opened a much much bigger one sold it and when he died of cancer his wife and kids were worth millions. Sometimes it is not the education. But the willingness to want to succeed.
