Father fatally shoots gunman threatening family in Texas restaurant

SAN ANTONIO — 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."

Fine work sir. I would love to see more ‘lessons’ like this around the country. Since the robber didn’t make it to school the day they were teaching “Don’t Rob Folks 101” and that lesson wasn’t taught at home, this lesson will have to do.
