TX:Husband shoots 2 bank robbery suspects who kidnapped him, his wife

COLUMBUS, Texas -- Two bank robbery suspects were shot in Colorado County Thursday night by a man who said they kidnapped him and his wife, a bank employee.

According to the Colorado County Sheriff’s Office, the couple had been held at gunpoint by the suspects inside their home just north of Columbus. They were then forced to drive to the First National Bank of Eagle Lake in Columbus.

The suspects then forced the woman to take out an undisclosed amount of funds, investigators said.

“We believe they had knowledge that she was an employee of the bank for them to be at the residence and to take her back,” Sgt. Andrew Weido with the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office said.

He said the suspects then forced the husband to drive them in his truck south down Highway 71, and that's when the husband of the bank employee was able to gain access to a firearm inside the vehicle.

He fired at the suspects near County Road 101. Authorities then responded to a 911 call from the scene at 7:30 p.m. with the Columbus Police Department arriving first.

When they arrived, officers found the two suspects with gunshot wounds lying on the ground near a pickup that was parked in a ditch.

One of the wounded, 20-year-old Jordan Kutach, was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition. The other, 21-year-old Preston Kutach, was taken by EMS to the Columbus Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

I wonder if this will make the national news. If not, why not?

This story seems to have much more interest than a community watch person having to shoot a teen thug wannabee in Florida.

Somehow, I do not think it will get much national attention. I hope I am proved wrong.

I am sure the husband will be charged with unlawful discharge or some nonsense by Eric Holder.

Eagle Lake is Narco-Terror territory, it is no longer America or even Mexico.

Wow, seven posts and no one has said, “Don’t Mess With Texas”. That term doesn’t strike much fear in Big 12-2 football.

Guns used for defense are not reported on. Defensive use of firearms does not fit the lefts agenda.

I think banks should give each customer two pins. One is legit, the other is an SOS call the cops code. It should allow the user to perform normal ATM routines and it should call the police.

Goons would stop doing this, because they would never know if the police were being alerted or not.

The report said “after hours.” It should take two people to close a vault, and it is put on a timer so that even with the two people who have both halves of the combination, it can’t be opened until regular hours.

Good idea. Maybe the bank could let you enter your pin backwards as a distress signal. Or maybe enter it twice.

Do you think he hopes to get a woman by looking like that or that he hopes to BE the woman?
