So much for that "good guy with a gun" theory
Responsible Gun Owner Rushes To Carjacking Victim's Rescue, Shoots Him In The Head

Your Responsible Gun Owner was spotted in Houston, posing as The Good Guy With A Gun. Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned. Or promised, when we're told that Good Guys With Guns will save the day.

One man is injured after a carjacking and shooting at a gas station in north Houston Saturday night.

Houston police responded to a shooting call around 11:15 p.m. Saturday at a Valero gas station on Jensen Drive at Reid Street in north Houston. Officials say two men jumped another man in the gas station parking lot and took the victim's Chevrolet pickup truck. Police say a witness then pulled out a gun and began shooting at the suspects, accidentally hitting the carjacking victim in the head.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he remains in stable condition. Police say the witness who shot at the suspects picked up shell casings and left the scene. Police found the stolen pickup truck about a mile down the road but are still searching for the suspects.

How heroic.
