During the entire robbery, Habib Howard focused on the gun pointed
at him. The intruder had entered Howard's Carryout just moments
before, walked to the back, picked up a 12-pack of beer, and brought
it to the cash register where Howard had just relieved a female
employee. Before Howard could ask for an ID required to purchase the
beer, the man drew a handgun, pointed it at Howard, and demanded
money. Howard complied, opening the cash register and trying to back
away. The robber demanded Howard place the money on the counter.
Again he complied and then stepped back. As he took the money and
began backing out of the store, the robber raised his gun. Howard
responded by drawing his own gun and shooting the gunman, who fled
the store. The gunman and an accomplice, identified as Jose
Custodia-Mota and Alberto Martinez, respectively, were apprehended
and charged with aggravated robbery.
