A man in Houston, Texas, was taking money out of a cash machine on April 15 when an armed man suddenly came around a corner and demanded money. The customer was complying, but the robber nonetheless began to pistol-whip him, according to reports. Fortunately, an armed citizen driving by witnessed the incident and quickly engaged the would-be robber with his own firearm, striking him in the leg and foot. The suspect was taken to the hospital and no one else was harmed in the incident. Law-enforcement officials told reporters the suspect was also wanted for murder in Louisiana.

On May 6, a woman and man were inside a home in Nacogdoches, Texas, when a man began knocking, then used a large metal object to break down the door. Once inside, the invader continued the attack and broke down the bedroom door, whereupon the man in the residence fatally shot him. The residents immediately called authorities and cooperated fully; no charges were filed against the armed citizen, though the case was still under review. (ketk.com, Tyler, Texas, 5/6/23)

Three suspects in Dallas, Texas, allegedly pointed guns at a man at a gas station on May 10 in an attempted carjacking. However, the car owner was armed and shot at the men, striking two of the three. The suspects fled in another car, apparently with one man’s feet still hanging out as they sped off and drove to a hospital, where one suspect died. The other two sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were expected to recover. No one else was injured and the investigation was ongoing. (wfaa.com, Dallas, Texas, 5/10/23)
