A family in Houston, Texas who owned a convenience store found themselves in a fight for their lives with a shotgun wielding armed robber over the weekend.
Fortunately, one of the family members, Usman Seth, was armed and ready to defend himself and his family.
According to the Houston Chronicle,
Seth said the gunman first threatened his older sister at the cash register.
“I wanted to make the threat go away,” said Seth, a 20-year-old who often works at the store.
It wasn’t the first time robbers have targeted the store, which the family opened about three years ago after moving from New York, he said.
His father passed him a 9 mm Smith & Wesson handgun, he said, and he began shooting.
“My family – their lives – were in my hands,” Seth said afterward. “I had to protect them.”
The would be robber kept threatening the family, so Seth kept firing. The suspect suffered multiple gunshot wounds which ultimately proved fatal.
The suspect is identified as a young hispanic man. The man’s family has allegedly been threatening to kill the Seth family in retaliation for killing their relative.
