When Usman Seth turned up for work at his dad’s convenience store a couple of years back, little did he know that in just a few short hours he would be engaging in a shootout with a masked armed robber.
Friday 12th September 2014. Usman is sat with his father at the family’s convenience store in Houston, Texas, whilst his sister serves at the till. All of a sudden, a masked man bursts into the store and points a shotgun at the girl behind the counter. Twenty year old Usman knew that he needed to act in order to save his sister, so he took his father’s 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun and opened fire on the robber.
Usman hit the man in the leg, but fire was returned, and a full blown gun battle ensued. Eventually, Usman managed to disarm the man, and the emergency services were called. Unfortunately for him, the unnamed man died at the scene.
