A brief crime spree came to a quick end when a Houston,
Texas, bandit attempted to carjack a carry permit holder. A man was
fueling his car when a gun-toting robber approached him and demanded
his wallet, keys, and car. Unable to find the right car key, the
crook ran into the intersection and pointed his gun in the window of
Robert Eichelberg's van. Eichelberg, a concealed-carry permit
holder, fired a shot at the suspect. He then stepped from the van
in an attempt to run to safety, but was confronted by the carjacker.
The assailant fired several shots at Eichelberg, but missed.
Eichelberg returned the fire, and didn't. The wounded thug was
apprehended a block away.
