TX: Store Clerk Shots, Kills Man Allegedly Stealing Beer:  "A Houston man paid the ultimate price for theft this week after he allegedly tried to steal beer from a convenience store, prompting the clerk to shoot and kill him.  Little is known about the victim other than that his name was Troy Vector, according to ABC station KTRK-TV in Houston, but store clerks told reporters that he was trying to steal several 12-packs of beer on Thursday night.  Rector was 52, and the Lone Star Grocery and Gas clerk was 19, according to KHOU-TV, a CBS affiliate in Houston.  He said Rector had stolen beer in the past and the clerk who was on duty told him that the man became aggressive this time around, going so far as to challenge the clerk to a fight.  The 19-year-old clerk who shot Rector had not been arrested as of Friday because police referred the case to a grand jury"

FL: Armed robber shot, killed after victim pulls his own gun:  "A man was killed this morning when one of two people he tried to rob at gunpoint drew their own gun and opened fire on the would-be robber, Jacksonville police said.  Sgt. Shawn Coarsey said the robber approached the two victims who were in their car in the 1000 block of West 13th Street about 3:30 a.m. He said the victim did have a permit to carry the firearm.

TX:  Restaurant manager shoots robbery suspect:  "An attempted robbery overnight at a Katy-area pizza restaurant ended with the suspect in the hospital with a gunshot wound.  Deputies tell us the 20-year-old suspect and another man entered the restaurant through a back door as an employee was taking out trash at the end of the night.  Officials said the armed duo then ran to the front of the store and confronted the manager, demanding cash.  Instead of reaching for money, the manager reached for a gun and fired twice at the 20-year-old.  The wounded suspect was taken to an area hospital. At last check, he was stable."
