Talking Jewelry store owner shoots smash-and-grab gang, hits 2 of 4

Their little party ended almost as soon as they started.

The owner was watching through a one way mirror as four men enter the shop after one was buzzed in. He knew something was wrong because the first guy held the door open while three men who were waiting out of sight rushed in. They started smashing the jewelry cases and the owner opened fire right through the one way mirror. He hit two, but all four were arrested a while later.

BTW: It's Texas and you can use lethal force to stop a property crime unlike some other states.

... four robbers masked with bandanas rushed the store and hammered away at the glass showcase.

What they didn't know was that Hayes was watching from the office, behind a one-way mirror.

"They were smashing the cases, but they stopped as soon as I started shooting," he said.

To bad he did not get all four of them.

But at least this story had a happy ending.

Time for the store owner to get himself a shotgun.

I would almost bet he has a shotgun stashed somewhere in the store. It's Texas. They don't call 911. They deal with it.

The robbers were probably from California, where you can rip off up to $1000.00 per person per day and get off with just a ticket if caught.

The thugs were en route to a smashed and shot denouement.

Well done. I especially like the shooting from behind one-way glass technique. Smart.
