42-year-old Artemio Caballero was walking down the street in Pasadena, Texas after having bought a new pair of boots at Wal-Mart.
A dark colored pickup truck pulled up next to Artemio and one of the passengers got out, brandishing a gun. The robber demanded Artemio hand over his bag and Artemio started to comply. At that moment, one of the other passengers in the truck said, "Just go ahead and shoot him anyway."
Artemio, a Concealed Weapons Permit holder, drew his gun first. He fired two shots into the armed man in front of him. The now wounded criminal jumped back into the truck and Artemio fired six more shots into the vehicle.
Police found the bullet riddled vehicle nearby and placed the two uninjured men under arrest for aggravated assault. The wounded man was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
