” A TX man who frequents a particular bar is being sought after he shot and killed two of four armed robbers that came into the bar just after closing Saturday morning. The armed patron ignored TX state law that prohibits carrying a firearm in an establishment where alcohol is served.
This man is currently being sought by police, and will likely face felony charges. Other bar patrons, however, are speaking out about this man’s good deeds and feel that he did the right thing.
After shots were fired, the patron left, probably due to the fact that he was breaking the law. “

” Two men were fatally shot by a customer after they attempted to rob a north Harris County bar early Saturday — the latest in a fury of shootings in Houston this week.
Jenny O’Donnell, owner of EJ’s Place, said four armed men came to her bar in the 16400 block of Kuykendall at Colwell, around 2:30 a.m.
O’Donnell, who was not there at the time of the incident, said a head bartender and waitress were closing up for the night when two men walked into the bar and demanded everyone get down on the floor. Two other men “lingered at the bar door,” she said.
That’s when a customer at the bar pulled his own gun and started shooting at the men, she said. The attempted robbers fired at least three rounds inside the bar, said O’Donnell.
” That man was a hero,” said O’Donnell. “We could have had some bodies.” “

” The man fatally shot Saturday at the Grand Hyatt downtown was having “mental issues” and threatened to kill someone, according to the San Antonio Police Department.
Witnesses and family members told police that Moises Torres, 34, had been “suffering from some un-diagnosed mental issues recently,” according to preliminary information released Monday.
Torres went to the sixth floor of the hotel at 1 p.m. and started breaking lights in the hallway, according to police. He started to bang on a door, and when a witness opened it, Torres said he was “looking for someone to kill,” police said.
John Neal, 43, was inside that room, but did not open the door right away, according to police. Neal waited until he thought Torres had left before opening the door and calling security, police said.
Torres then charged at Neal and another woman, according to police. Neal drew a pistol and fired one shot at Torres, stopping him in the doorway.”
