Father Shoots Gunman Threatening Family in Texas Restaurant
Police say a father eating with his family at a fast food restaurant in San Antonio fatally shot a robber who threatened his family with a gun.

Father Shoots Gunman Threatening Family in Texas Restaurant



SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Police say a father eating with his family at a fast food restaurant in San Antonio fatally shot a robber who threatened his family with a gun.

Police Capt. Michael Starnes told the San Antonio Express-News that the robber died at the scene Wednesday evening.

San Antonio police Sgt. Roy Miller says the gunman threatened the father and restaurant employees and the employees ran out the back of the restaurant. The gunman demanded money and, when the father refused, the gunman turned his weapon toward the man's family. At that point, the father, who is licensed to carry a firearm, pulled out his own gun and fired.

Starnes says the father isn't facing charges and that he "really saved the day and protected a lot of people."

Hopefully make the next bad-guy think twice about armed robbery. Never know who is carrying and not at all helpless -- and probably a crack shot!

Maybe this is why democrats want to get rid of guns. So they can get away with more robberies and not be shot legally!

This is great, but I need more info. I want to know what gun he used, what holster, where he was carrying, ammo, shot placement, how many shots, expansion of bullet, did the bullet exit, did the POS go straight down or did they have to track him.

I also need some LDPs.
