Robber shot with own gun (VIDEO)

An attempted robbery at a liquor store in Houston Tuesday afternoon left the suspect dead after the clerk wrestled his gun away and shot him.

The suspect, who was only described as a young man, entered the store about 3:15 p.m., jumped over the counter and demanded cash from the clerk. But the clerk did not comply and a struggled ensued before the clerk gained control of the robber’s gun and shot him.

The incident was apparently captured on the store’s surveillance video and is being reviewed by authorities.
