From the video: When a robber shot a store clerk, a second clerk with a concealed handgun permit shot the robber.

A clerk at a Dayton gas station was shot during an attempted armed robbery at a gas station late on Sunday night.

Dayton Police say a man walked into the Sunoco in the 1500 block of Wayne Avenue around 11:20 p.m. on Sunday and demanded money.

San Antonio, Texas, (Fox San Antonio), November 18, 2016

Police say one man was injured after he was shot while running from a possible crime scene on Thursday night.

According to police, some family members leaving a concert after 9 p.m. found their car was burglarized near the downtown intersection of Bonham and 4th Street. While they waited for police to arrive, they heard gunfire and saw a man with a gun running toward them firing more shots. One of the concert-goers pulled out his own gun and ordered the other man to drop his weapon. When the suspect did not comply, the man fired one shot, hitting the suspect in the arm. Investigators say the concert-goer does have a concealed handgun license and will likely not face any charges since he claimed his family felt threatened. . . .


Chattanooga, Tennessee (Times Free Press), November 18, 2016

One man is dead after a shooting at the Days Inn on Carter Street just off M.L. King Boulevard.

Chattanooga police said late Friday a guest at the hotel may have been involved in the fatal shooting.

No information about the man who was shot has been released at this time.

Chattanooga police spokesman Victor Miller did say the shooting happened in a breezeway outside the rooms and that a motel guest may have been involved.

Part of the parking lot was roped off by crime scene tape and investigators worked the scene as motel guests and diners at the attached City Cafe stood watching.

Some guests said the shooting was part of an attempted robbery, but the target instead pulled a weapon and shot the would-be robber. The man died at the scene. . . .
