Samuel 'Lucky' Parker didn't live up to his name when he was shot
and killed during a store robbery -- his second of the night. Parker
had robbed a Texaco station just a half hour before entering the
Sunrise Mart. Near closing time, Tamer Abdulwahab and his cousin,
Abdulwahab Zeidan, were standing at the counter. Parker entered
wearing dark clothing, a face mask, and a single glove. Abdulwahab
thought it was some sort of prank until the masked man pulled a gun,
aimed it at his cousin, and demanded money. Abdulwahab slipped out
of sight long enough to draw his own gun and point it at Parker.
Zeidan had been frozen behind the register, but when Parker cocked
his gun, Zeidan slipped and fell. Parker then fired several shots,
which hit the cash register just above Zeidan's head. Abdulwahab
fired at Parker, striking him twice. Realizing his luck had run out,
Parker fled the store. Authorities later found his body in a nearby
ditch. Neither cousin was injured, and when police recovered
Parker's pistol, they found it had jammed after he fired five
rounds. "He was shooting at my cousin, my blood," said Abdulwahab.
"We are lucky to be here."
