A store clerk in Houston, Texas, returned fire Monday night, fatally wounding an alleged armed robber who was using counterfeit money.
ABC 13 reports the robbery suspect allegedly tried to make a purchase with a counterfeit bill around 10 p.m. When the clerk refused the money the suspect allegedly pulled a gun and fired a round.
The clerk responded by pulling his own gun and opening fire, shooting the robbery suspect.
First responders initially thought the suspect would survive his wounds:
Shooting: 8030 Fulton, one shot, transported to area hospital and expected to survive. #hounews CC13

But Houston Police noted the robbery suspect was pronounced dead less than two hours later.
