Concealed carry customer thwarts Denny's robbery
Police said a customer was sitting inside the Denny’s in the 11900 block of East Freeway at Federal Road around 5:50 a.m. when two men with guns entered the restaurant wearing bandanas.
Authorities said the customer, who had a concealed handgun, took cover and began shooting at the suspects.
The suspects returned fire before fleeing the scene in a white minivan. The customer ran outside and fired at the suspects’ van, but they got away.Police later found a white minivan with bullet holes in it and are still searching for the perps. The story highlights the danger to armed robbers in Texas and other jurisdictions with concealed carry. It probably accounts for one of the reasons for a falling crime rate in states with the permits.
