A Houston man was robbed at gunpoint as he made his way to his car after leaving a bar last Thursday. Kevin Dorsey, told the local news that he hadn’t even closed his car door before a man, dressed in all
black and wearing a ski mask, put a gun to his chest and demanded his wallet, cell phone and car keys.
According to Dorsey, two men in a Mercedes happened to be passing by during the robbery. “As soon as they pass me, they see the guy has a gun to me,” Dorsey told the news reporter. “They stopped right there. The guys in the gray Mercedes asked me, ‘Did you just get jacked?’ I said yes.”
The two unidentified vigilantes then chased the suspect and, after reportedly exchanging fire with the suspect, they wounded the thief.
Apparently the robber jumped a fence after being shot in an attempt to escape — only to find a German Shepherd waiting for him on the other side. The dog attacked him and prevented him from escaping before police arrived.
The robbery suspect, later identified by police as Christopher Hutchins, was being treated at a local hospital for a gunshot to his abdomen. He is expected to recover.
It’s unclear whether the two men who came to the rescue were concealed carry permit holders. Reports of the incident, however, do not indicate that police took any action against the men.
In Texas, gun owners can carry firearms in their car without a concealed carry permit so long as the weapon is not concealed and the owner is not involved in criminal activity, a criminal street gang or otherwise prohibited by law from carrying a weapon.
