On high noon, four armed men burst in to Jeff’s Jewelry in Houston, Texas. The robbers came in shooting. But speed, surprise and violence of action weren’t enough to win the fight against the store owner and employees. From yourhoustonnews.com
In a hail of gunfire, Conroe jewelry store owner Jeffery Turner Jr. made the decision to shoot back – with his AK-47 rifle – at four men who opened fire on his customers and staff during an attempted robbery Monday afternoon.
In the aftermath of the bullet spray, one robber lay dead in the doorway among shattered glass; while Turner, his employees and customers were left shaken but unharmed.
As the above video indicates, this wasn’t the first rodeo for the owner and employees of Jeff’s Jewelry in Conroe, Texas. In 2014, there was a robbery attempt where five armed robbers were scared off by an employee with a shotgun. From khou.com:
“God was with us today, he had his arms around everybody that was in there today,” said Warner.
This isn’t the first time Jeff’s Jewelry was hit. Back in 2014, a group of armed robbers barged in, but were scared off when they realized an employee had a gun.
This time, customers are glad the owner was prepared.
“I’m just thankful we’re all ok, and he’s ok because he really stood up for everybody,” said Havens.
In addition to the AK-47 clone-firing employee, at least two other good guys were armed and firing back at the attackers: four black men in black clothing. There were multiple surveillance cameras in the store. The video has not been released.
With one of the attackers dead, it’s likely that the others will be apprehended shortly. It is not known if any of the other attackers were wounded.
