Surveillance video shows violent confrontation at gas station
KHOU 11 ^ | 11-27-12 | Rucks Russell

Posted on 11/28/2012 10:43:25 AM PST by smokingfrog

HOUSTON—As family members of a man who was shot by a Valero clerk in southeast Houston called for the store clerk’s arrest, the store owner released surveillance video.

Alexander Calloway, 21, and his two cousins were trying to enter the gas station on Martin Luther King and Belarbor around 3:30 a.m., but the store was locked.

The young men got into an argument with the clerk, who unlocked his door and came outside, police said.

Someone punched the clerk in the face and the clerk pulled out his gun and shot Calloway in the stomach, according to HPD.

Calloway’s cousins rushed him to a fire station on Cullen at Selinsky, and paramedics transported him to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition.

On Tuesday, the store owner played the surveillance video for KHOU 11 News.

It showed the store clerk being punched by Calloway before the clerk opened fire.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Haven’t watched the video, but am willing to bet the 1st thing I thought of is applicable:

We have a Martin/Zimmerman situation here.

I think I can be justified stating that these communities are calling for affirmative action justice.

That’s why the door is supposed to be locked.

When armed you should avoid confrontation. Unlocking the door was a mistake.

"That honkey shot my baby! He was a good boy! He was just goin' to the store to get an Arizona Ice Tea and some Skittles!"

I can just hear it now.

Self-defense while white? Life in prison.

“I’m just hurt,” said Allexander Calloway. “He didn’t have to shoot my son. He didn’t have to shoot my son.”

If your son hadn't committed assault and battery he wouldn't have been shot.

May have been Calloway was playing the now famous knock-out game, but the store clerk was playing the shoot-out game.

Your link indicates Quanell X is already involved.

No surprise there.

But he may be right. He’s claiming the clerk left the store looking for a fight.

And why else would any one leave the safety and security of a locked store with bullet proof glass to confront punks at 3:30 AM on MLK Blvd???

Martin/Zimmerman; I tell ya.

(Anyone know yet the race of the clerk?)

Clerk took a hellava good punch by the punk.

If the punk would have knocked the clerk out, one can only guess what the punk would have done next.

For those not from this area, we have own very own little muslim community disruptor, Malcolm-X wannabe called Quannell-X.

...always somebody else fault, but never, ever the punk-ass gangsta roaming the streets at 3:00am.

I don’t get this - - the clerk was certainly close enough to fire a head shot.

The door is locked so that the clerk remains safe. Then the bozo went outside to argue with these hoods. THe clerk was smart enough to go outside packing heat but would have been better off just putting up with their mouthing off at him and staying inside.

Opening the door for scum is always a bad idea.

Obviously, the clerk is “White” or there would be NO PROTEST.

Being right doesn’t help you keep your job. He was fired because the owner was afraid of the savage mob.

My prediction: 0bama DOESN’T stick his nose in and say that the scum would look just like his son. 0 was reelected. He doesn’t need any more White guilt to get reelected.

By the way, it doesn't look to me like the clerk "came outside".
It looks like he remained in the doorway, inside.

Maybe he is ME. Zimmerman was hispanic.

It don’t matter to the racers like Quannell. If any other race or heritage shoots a black?

It must be murder.

(Of course it goes without saying that the thousands of black on black violent crimes are no big deal.)

Someone punched the clerk in the face and the clerk pulled out his gun and shot Calloway in the stomach, according to HPD.

Seems like the identity of the 'someone' who punched the clerk is obvious - he's facing the camera. Why not simpy give his name?

This 'journalist' makes it sound as though the clerk shot the wrong guy, likely on purpose.

The dad is on the video saying, “he didn’t need to be shot”. Yea, black people have a natural right to punch you in the face./s

Because the black author is “keeping it real” and making the clerk look like a criminal.

Hard to infer any good intentions from the gentlemen attempting to get inside a closed business with a locked door...

Agree he should not have opened the door. Glad that he was ready to defend himself though, and that he followed through when needed.

Absolutely. The arrogant attitude of some these people is twisted at best.

Looking at the stats, many more people die from punches and kicks, physical fights etc, than gun shots.

No mention of the fate of the perps two partners that fired lead into the store. It seems to me that should be a crime too.

No excuse for thrash like that to be loose on the streets. Too bad the clerk did not aim a little higher or lower.

The first mistake was working anywhere near a Martin Luther Kig street.

You know when you work there that you will be dealing with animals.

Never go near Martin Luther King street no matter what city you are in.

It was extremely stupid to open the door. He should have called police and waited the 15 minutes it takes for them to get there.

But keep the door locked.
