San Antonio, TX – A man fatally shot a would-be robber at a Popeye’s restaurant on Wednesday night.
The man told the robber he wasn’t going to give him anything.
Unbeknownst to the robber, the family man didn’t go far. He had two more children who were using the bathroom when the gunman arrived.
As the suspect turned to demand money from the workers, the two kids walked out of the bathroom.
That’s when the gunman made a fatal mistake – he pointed his gun at the children.
The children’s father immediately shot the robber, who soon died on the restaurant floor.
Employees locked the restaurant until police arrived on the scene after the shooting.
The identity of the robbery suspect has not been released, but investigators said he was between 25 and 30 years old, Express News reported.
San Antonio Police Department Capitan Michael Starnes said that the unnamed family man who shot the robber was licensed to carry a weapon.
“He really saved the day and protected a lot of people today, Capt. Starnes said.
Capt. Starnes said the father who shot the robber will not face any criminal charges.
