The first rule of a gun fight ...

... is bring a gun:
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.


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.

[Pause to let cheers die down]

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.
