Store owner takes action when robbers storm store

Posted: Updated:

Four robbers, two of them armed, entered Pepe's Grocery on Bernal Drive in West Dallas.

The store owner fought back and shot one of them.

He called 911 but waited for a long time. Police never came so he went home.

On Sunday night, surveillance cameras from in and outside the store show four men with masks charge in.

One had an assault rifle. The other had a pistol.

One smacks an employee in the face then holds the assault rifle to his head as he cowers on the ground.

A female employee behind the counter is in shock and throws her hands up.

A hand reached around to grab cash from the register. That's when the store owner shoots his weapon. The female employee is unharmed but falls on the floor.

He called 911 after they took off.

Police say the 911 call taker had difficulty understanding the call and did not hear the caller say anyone had been shot.

The call was classified as a robbery instead of a shooting so police took longer to respond.

It wasn't until hours later that he got a call saying he had to return because he'd hit one suspect twice. The suspect was discovered a block away with bullet wounds to the leg and abdomen.
