71-year-old Carmen Polanco Perez was tending to the grocery store he owns in Hidalgo County, Texas when a pair of armed robbers entered the store and demanded cash. One of the robbers then shot Perez in the chest with a shotgun, prompting Perez to retrieve a .380-caliber handgun he keeps under the counter and return fire. The criminals fled once Perez started firing, but police believe that one of the robbers is a man who later showed up at a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound. Perez was treated at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries and has been released.
