Armed witness wounds robber at store
Star-Telegram Staff Writer
FORT WORTH -- It was a phone call he says he'll never forget -- his wife's voice on his cellphone pleading "there's nothing in my purse" to someone pointing a gun at her.
That's what a 56-year-old Fort Worth man, who is licensed to carry a concealed weapon, said he heard before he shot an armed robber late Tuesday at a Fort Worth grocery store.
"I still can't believe it," the man said. "You tell yourself this will never happen. Then you run to the store in your house shoes and practically your pajamas ... and it happens."
The Star-Telegram is not identifying the man -- police are calling him a good Samaritan -- because he said he is afraid for his family's safety.
One suspect is recovering from gunshot wounds in the hospital, but at least two robbers remain at large, police said.
The man said he and his wife made a late stop at the store for yogurt and soda. He sat outside in the car while his wife went inside, and he soon noticed two men crouching suspiciously in the parking lot.
About 11:30 p.m., three men carrying semiautomatic weapons burst into an Albertsons at 3525 Sycamore School Road, in an "invasion-style manner," said Lt. Dean Sullivan, a police spokesman.
The robbers took purses and wallets from customers, he said.
Outside, the man said he watched the robbers go in and dialed 911.
He said he told the dispatcher that he was worried about his wife and was going inside.
"I was hoping she was still at the back of the store near the yogurt," he said. "But as I was walking up, she called my cellphone. I heard her talking about her purse and then I heard a loud banging sound."
He would later learn, he said, that the bang was his wife dropping her phone when a robber ripped the purse from her hands. At the time, he thought she might have been hurt, he said.
The man said he entered the store and saw a man pointing a gun at him, so he raised his hands in the air.
They both started to speak at the same time. Then, the man said, he sensed he was about to get shot.
"He has his finger on the trigger," he said.
So, he said, he drew his Beretta -- advertised as "The firearm that protects America" -- and fired first.
He couldn't tell whether he hit the robber, who fled out the door, he said. When the robber turned partly back toward him, he fired twice more. He saw the robber stumble.
Another man, apparently an accomplice, helped him escape through a field, he said. A third robber may have fled out another door.
Blood found on the ground led officers to believe that the robber had been shot, Sullivan said.
A short time later, Rayshaun Johnson was dropped off at Huguley Memorial Medical Center in south Fort Worth, police said. He had suffered gunshot wounds to the buttocks and foot.
Johnson was under police guard at the hospital Wednesday, Sullivan said. He could face aggravated-robbery charges when he is released.
Officers found a gun that may have been used by one of the robbers while canvassing the area around the grocery store, he said. They also recovered customers' purses and wallets.
Detectives are looking into whether the same men were involved in a robbery at a check-cashing business earlier Tuesday night, police said.
The man who shot at the robbers at the Albertsons said he was questioned for about two hours after the shooting. Detectives told him that they didn't anticipate charges, he said. On Wednesday afternoon, he said that he hadn't gotten any sleep since the shooting. He said he got the concealed-weapon license in 1998 or 1999 because he traveled a lot. "I didn't want to kill the guy," he said. "I'm glad he's going to live. But I didn't want to die either, so I defended myself."

Fort Worth police praise man who shot at Albertsons robber
FW: Suspect in crime at store left at hospital; 2 others sought in case. 12:00 AM CDT on Thursday, July 5, 2007

By MARISSA ALANIS / The Dallas Morning News

A Fort Worth man who only wanted to protect his wife stuck in an Albertsons store during a robbery is being hailed for his heroics by police. The retired man may have shot one of the robbers early Wednesday at the store in the 3500 block of Sycamore School Road.
Three men armed with guns robbed the store shortly after midnight and stole wallets and purses belonging to customers, said Lt. Dean Sullivan, a Fort Worth police spokesman. The man, whom police didn't identify because he is a witness, saw two of the men walking around nervously before they entered the store. The witness said he called 911 when one of the men pulled out a gun and fired as he walked into the store. About 20 seconds later, the witness's wife tried to call him from her cellphone inside the store. But he never got to talk to her.

"I just heard her saying, 'There is nothing in my purse,' " he recalled. "And there was a 'pow.' The phone went dead." The man, who has a concealed handgun license, sprang into action. He walked into the store with his .45-caliber pistol under his shirt. "I really thought I'd find her in the store shopping and get her out the back door," he said. "That was my intention. ... I had no intention of confronting these armed bandits."

But in the store, one of the robbers pointed the gun at the man. The man then fired twice. The robber ran away, and it's unknown whether he returned fire, Lt. Sullivan said. Outside the store, the retired man fired again.

Lt. Sullivan said Rayshaun Johnson was possibly hit during the robbery. Mr. Johnson, 17, was injured on his backside and foot. He was dropped off in the parking lot of Huguley Memorial Medical Center in Fort Worth.

Lt. Sullivan said Mr. Johnson faces a charge of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon once he's released from the hospital. Police continue to search for the other two robbers. Descriptions were unavailable.

The man said he does not feel like a hero.

"I don't feel good at all that there is an 18-year-old guy who's been injured and is going to go to some terrible place because it was a horrible mistake that somebody talked him into," he said. "I was worried about my wife. I just wanted to get her out of there."
