A Texas grandmother shot dead an armed man who tried to rob her family-owned food truck in a Houston parking lot on Tuesday.
Keshondra Howard Turner, 53, was cooking soul food inside her “Elite Eats and Cold Treats” truck when a 23-year-old man drove up and asked what food was being served, according to Houston police Lt Bryan Bui, KHOU-11 TV reported.
After Turner told him, the man suddenly pulled out a gun, exited his car, and demanded cash.
Turner shut the truck’s window, but the man forced it open, stuck his weapon inside, and tried to fire at her.
The gun jammed, and Turner, who has a handgun license, drew her own weapon and shot the would-be robber several times.
The man stumbled about 50 feet away before collapsing, and authorities later found him and pronounced him dead.
After the shooting, Turner suffered from a panic attack and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Police say the grandmother is not expected to be charged as she fired her weapon in self-defense, KHOU reported.
The woman’s son told KHOU that he believed the incident had been saved due to “divine intervention.”
“She’s a Godly woman; that’s why the gun jammed - because God jammed it,” he said.
“My momma is a great person, you know? Good-hearted, looking out for everybody. She’d give the shirt off her back,” he said, adding that she would not have fired her gun unless she felt she had no other choice.
