Hurricane Harvey has already proved to be a tragic storm. Nature’s fury once again showing that we are subservient to it no matter how smart and tough the human species can be. Normally it is through these moments that we see amazing stories of people coming together and repairing the damage that the wind and water bring in its wake.
However, even in these trying times of disaster, there are still certain people who will jump at the opportunity to use the guise of chaos to steal and hurt other neighbors who are simply trying to survive.
This is what happened in Corpus Christi in the first hour of Hurricane Harvey’s landfall.
Corpus Christi Police officers were called to a home on the 7100 block of Ficus Court, where they had received word that a man had attempted to break into a home in order to loot or steal the items within.
However, it seems that the would-be robber was unaware that the house was not abandoned during the opening hours of Harvey, and that there was still a well-armed homeowner inside.
Upon the thief’s entrance into the house, he was met by this homeowner and his firearm. He was then met with a bullet from the gun, which entered the thief’s head. That is how police found the man.
As of the writing of this article, further details on the case are sparse, but what is known is that a looting was avoided by a well-armed citizen who would not give his home to nature nor man.
We at Concealed Carry Inc. hope for all the best following this immense tragedy and hope that the people of Texas and the entire Gulf region maintain their well-known level of strength through the chaos of this ordeal.
