Armed Texas Man Tracks Down His Stolen Car And Tries To Take It Back – Doesn’t Go Well For The Robbers

A man whose car had been stolen tracked down his vehicle to a Texas shopping center lot – before shooting dead one of the alleged thieves and wounding the other.

There are just so many layers of Texas to this story that it feels almost like it was made up!

Gunfire erupted in the parking lot outside South Park Mall, San Antonio, just before 1pm Thursday after the man figured out where his stolen car was located.

The owner of the stolen car had ordered the driver and his female companion out of the vehicle – and sat them down by the tire at gunpoint while they waited for police.

But the stolen car victim was hit with a bullet when one of the suspected thieves, a male, took a gun out from his waistband and opened fire.

The owner then returned fire – which killed the suspected robber.

Here’s the only video from the incident:

The woman, who was the passenger in the stolen vehicle, was also shot, and is in critical condition at the hospital.

Police said that the owner of the stolen vehicle is in stable condition.

No charges have been filed yet.

The names of the people involved have not been released.

The local police chief, meanwhile, called the incident “certainly a case of self-defense,” and said drily:

“We would prefer that they call the police before taking that into your own hands, but he did what he felt he needed to do.”
