A robbery attempt was thwarted by a licensed handgun holder Tuesday night.

The Tyler Police Department responded to a report of a robbery about 8 p.m. outside the Family Dollar store, 3505 Frankston Highway, according to a news release.

The officers met with two victims who said they had come to the store to purchase a dog after seeing on advertisement on social media.
When they arrived, they were met by a single black male who led them around the building to make the transaction. As they turned the corner they were confronted by several more black men who yelled at them to get on the ground. The victims believe one of the suspects pointed a handgun at them, but could not be certain due to poor lighting conditions.
One of the victims, who has a valid Texas handgun license, drew his weapon and pointed it at the suspects. The suspects fled, and the victims went inside and asked store employees to call the police.
