Texas husband shoots 2 bank robbers that abducted him, his wife
Quote:COLUMBUS, Texas – Authorities say a Houston-area man turned the tables on two bank robbery suspects who had abducted him and his wife by pulling a gun on the unsuspecting duo and shooting them both, killing one of them.

The suspects apparently knew that the woman worked at the First National Bank of Eagle Lake in Columbus, and they abducted her and her husband at gunpoint at their residence north of the city on Thursday and drove them back to the bank, Columbus County Sheriff's Sgt. Andrew Weido told Houston television station KHOU.

The suspects forced the woman to taken an undisclosed amount of money from the bank, then forced the husband to drive them in his truck down Highway 71, Weido said. It was then that the husband grabbed a gun that was in the truck and fired at the suspects, he said.

Officers who responded to a 911 call found both suspects lying on the ground near the truck suffering from gunshot wounds.

They were taken to different hospitals, where one of them was pronounced dead.

The other suspect remained hospitalized in critical condition Friday. Columbus County authorities didn't respond to calls for comment Saturday.

Good for him. Hopefully he faces no charges.

If the story is correct, I am happy about how it turned out. I'm sure the guy will be living with his decision. But at least he and his wife will be living to contemplate it.

Criminals need to learn. Their choice of work needs to be dangerous, make it less appealing.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
Dunno, it might have taken me 30 to 45 minutes to calm myself enough to call 911.
Nice. Shot both of them. Cool
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
