Richardson Police said four men walked into the store and two of them were holding handguns.

The store owner was able to grab a gun and shot one of the suspects.

He was taken to the hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

The ATF and National Shooting Sports Foundation is offering up to a $10,000 reward for information leading to the suspects’ capture.

    Very interesting that the Fourth Estate releases a description of the (cough) white car, but no data about the perps themselves. It’s as if … “the car did it”.

    Every once in awhile, the kimono slips open.

    Back in the Eighties, it was called advocacy journalism and the university schools of journalism had begun teaching it. I had occasion to work on electronics used in one of those back then. I saw it. Posters on the bulletin board, frankly urging “stick it to the Establishment”.
