March 21, 2014, Houston, Texas – A would be robber entered a Phillips 66 gas station hoping to relieve the store of some of it’s hared earned money. After demanding money from the clerks, the bad guy was greeted with not one, but two firearms and the fight was on. The robber exchanged gun fire with both clerks and eventually found himself retreating to the back of the store where he began throwing merchandise all over the store and a standoff ensued. After an hour, the bad guy emerged from his hiding place and was shot by the clerks. Before the police could take him into custody, the bad guy started a fire in the store, eventually causing about $100,000 in damage to the store. Neither one of the clerks was injured and the bad guy was taken into custody without achieving his goal of robbing the store.
