Concealed Carry Holder Stops Shooter, Prevents “Further Loss of Life”

Top Tier Gear USA


A man who walked into a Texas bar last night and fatally shot the manager was killed by an armed customer.

From the Star-Telegram:

The shooting was reported about 6:15 p.m. at Zona Caliente Sports Bar and Grill in the 6500 block of South Cooper Street.

Witnesses reported that a man arrived at the bar and walked up to a male employee, said Lt. Chris Cook, police spokesman. An altercation ensued, and the man pulled out a gun and shot the employee, killing him.

A customer who had a concealed handgun then approached the man and fatally shot him.

“By all accounts, he decided to engage the shooter because he wanted to prevent further loss of life,” Cook said. “If the shooter was going to do additional shooting, because he engaged the shooter there was no further loss of life.”

Police have identified the gunman as 48-year-old James Jones of Grand Prairie and the victim as 37-year-old Cesar Perez of Duncanville. The man who killed Jones has not been identified, reports Dallas News.

Two loaded guns and two knives were found on Jones, Cook said Thursday.

Cook told the Arlington Voice that witnesses said Jones was acting “incoherent” and “strange” when he entered the bar. He reportedly came in and started yelling, and without warning, drew a handgun and shot Perez.

The man who stopped Jones is not expected to face any charges, as the bar is a “blue sign” business. State law allows licensed holders to conceal carry into such an establishment.

“We’re treating the good guy as sort of a hero,” Cook told Dallas News.

Jones, on the other hand, did not have a license to carry.

An investigation is in progress, but as of now, police do not have evidence that Jones knew Perez.

    now that’s how its done.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      I’m sure the libtards will try to spin this into another lame-ass excuse for more gun control.

      • Would we expect anything else?

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          Neg. We would not.

      • RMS1911

        don’t know why everyone knows dead people (zombie-americans) vote democrat.
        they should encourage more of this…….^_^

    • Clementine

      My thoughts exactly!

  • It’s almost if people will stop a situation from escalating if given the power. Who would’ve thought?

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      Normal people, lacking immunity from escalation, will tend to de-escalate rather than not.

  • Rayven Wrathchild

    And like all moronic statements it ends ….. did not have a license to carry. No one should need a license to defend themselves or stop a crime in progress with deadly force.

    • roger

      I think the story was describing the original shooter as not being licensed to carry, but the guy who stopped him was………..

      • Rayven Wrathchild

        I understood that. It was still a moron’s statement expected from a statist pig. These pigs show there colors fast. And somehow you think people need a license to defend themselves too?

  • Gil G

    I thought the 2A was the license.

    • Tatiana Covington

      Why should one need anyone’s permission? The very idea is one of the most subversive, brain-stopping things ever.

      • RMS1911

        Gil g is afraid of guns and freedom.

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          And education.

    • RMS1911

      the 2a protects the natural right to self defense.(against the dark arts)

  • freefall

    No motive but to go on a killing spree of random people? Good people should ALWAYS be armed these days. It’s become too crazy to even try to anticipate the insanity going full-scale here in the land of milk and honey.
    Glad the guy was there, but best to stay clear of bars as the poor wretches crying in their beer will continue to randomly erupt as times get worse.

        Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

    this is a lie libtards say this never happens it’s a myth. oops I guess they were wrong as usual.

    • pepe

      I read some comments on another site. The one that stuck out was “He shot the guy after he shot an employee in the restaurant. How do we know the shooter was going to shoot anybody else?” and this one “How do we know that the second shooter didn’t pay the first shooter to kill the employee and then kill him so he would keep his mouth shut?” These leftist pigs watch way too much TV and live in a fantasy world. ,

    I wish George Soros would walk into an Texas bar and start waving a handgun around…

    Justice !!!

  • celticreeler

    Hey, Daily Sheeple…hope you publish a follow-up once more information is known. Such as what, if anything, had transpired between the gunman and the manager.

    I read stories like this and I can’t help feeling manipulated.

  • Rastus Jones

    I’m glad they are not pursuing charges. This hero would be in big trouble in Florida. We aren’t allowed to carry in bars, and certainly can’t be drinking while packing heat.

    • Jas

      Where can I find those stipulations in the constitution?

    • pepe

      Not allowed doesn’t mean you can’t.

  • Ernie Engle

    Guess what … you reap what you sow… thank God a customer in the bar armed…he was a hero. Screw the Lib-ra-tard.
