Well, it’s a good thing that no one was hurt.
Perp rush: No lights, no siren, "Hey, ya'll wanna hit the WhattaBurger drive thru?"
Good shooting, Citizen. Civilization thanks you.
How is that gun control issue working out for you?
Haven’t heard of too many citizens with guns getting shot. Seems to only be criminals who are filling up the morgues.
Only problem I now see from liberals is a morgue tax.
UPDATE: Store employee Thom Vu, 49, told HPD investigators Hall tried to push open a door in the back then climbed onto a nearby ATM machine, police said.
Hall then crawled over the safety glass around the register area and fell behind the counter.
Vu told police he grabbed a gun as Hall came toward him and opened fire.
