APPEARS IN Gun Laws

The Star-Telegram, Fort Worth, TX, 05/12/08

Monday, May 12, 2008

A doughnut shop owner in Fort Worth, Texas, was busy mixing the next day’s dough early Friday morning when a burglar wearing a ski mask and carrying what looked like a rifle broke into the store, grabbed the owner, and demanded money. The owner briefly got away and ran outside to the outside of the business but was stopped when the burglar hit her on the head with the rifle, which police later determined was a BB gun. The burglar grabbed the cash drawer and the shop owner’s car keys and was attempting to start the owner’s car to flee when a neighbor armed with a gun stopped him. The neighbor fired once, fatally shooting the burglar, who had an almost thirty year long criminal history.
