On Monday morning, Feb. 18, a man and woman attempted to rob a CVS pharmacy in San Antonio, Texas, according to a report by FOX 29, but the act was not carried out as planned.
After the failed robbery, a foot pursuit involving police and the two suspects followed. The male suspect ran into a house for cover, but did not expect what soon followed. The homeowner quickly responded to his intrusion by a stern warning with a single gunshot.
Although the homeowner did not shoot the suspect, he apparently got his attention enough for police to close in, but it was not stated how exactly the man ended up in police custody. The woman was also apprehended nearby.
It was reported that the man was taken to a local hospital for an evaluation, although it was not stated if that evaluation was physical or psychological.
This is yet another story of guns being used in self-defense where nobody was actually shot, thus it will likely be left out of self-defense statistics.
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number 10.
