A 74-year-old man shot and wounded a teenager who attempted to carjack him with a knife early this morning in southwest Houston, police said.[Pause to let cheers die down]
When the victim got out of his car, he told investigators that the teen came up to him and pressed a knife against his throat.
"He said, 'Give me your car or I'll kill you,'" said Victor Senties, a spokesman for the Houston Police Department.
The victim was able to reach inside his car to get a pistol. He fired two shots at the suspect, Senties said.
Alas, it's not another to add to Jay's Dead Goblin count, as the suspect is in the Hospital in fair condition. But Bravo Zulu to Mr. Peters.
