Shop Owner in Houston, kills an armed rubber in gunfire, says he had to protect his family!
Usman Seth, 20-years-old, from Houston, said he opened fire on the armed robber to protect his family, that the “Criminal” had a “shot gun,” and threatened his sister at the cash register. He added that the night had been “uneventful before the gunman burst in around 10 PM – Friday, 12th September, 2014.”
Usman, whose family convenience store had been a target for criminals since it opened, also stated this: “I wanted to make the threat go away,” Seth told the Houston Chronicle. He said “My family – their lives – were in my hands, so i had to protect them.” He added that his father handed him a 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun then he opened fire! He kept threatening us,’ Seth told reporters. As the gunfight continued, the robber positioned himself beside a Dr. Pepper cooler. Finally Seth was able to hit him again, eventually killing the man.
Seth said he recognized the man’s face when first responders arrived and removed the man’s mask and was later identified as a young Hispanic man who had been in the store 30 minutes earlier. His name has not been released.
However, Seth said the man’s brother came to the store Saturday morning and threatened to take revenge by murdering the family.
Seth’s father, also named Usman Seth, 59, said he worries the family will have peace after this.
‘We are continuously getting threats from them,’ he said.
A grand jury is expected to review the case. Photos below:
