TX:Employee's husband shoots man who allegedly held up check-cashing store


A suspected robber who tried to hold up an ACE Cash Express in north Houston is in the hospital after he was shot by the husband of one of the store’s employees.

Houston police said the attempted robbery was reported around 8:30 a.m. Monday at the store on East Tidwell Road and Airline Drive.

"An employee was ambushed at this store,” said Sgt. Francisco Fernandez with the Houston Police Department. “Two males apparently broke in through the roof."


Police said the employee’s husband, who was a concealed handgun license holder, was with her. He took off after the men and pointed his gun, pulling the trigger and shooting one of the suspects in the arm. He held him down until police arrived.
