As most of us recognize, the news media is usually not the best source of "the totality of the circumstances", but the reporters in the link above did a decent job of explaining some basics of Texas Penal Code Section 9.41. Those who have taken one of my CHL classes may recall that I don't typically spend much time on 9.41, other than cautions of possible "land mines" and "thin ice". And trying to get everyone to think about in advance: What "stuff" do you own that would be worth the emotional and financial grief that typically follows shooting someone?"
And more food for thought: I am certainly not blaming the victim or apologizing for the deceased, but ..... Ladies, please think long and hard about the jewelry you wear in some public places.
Edited to add: Similar, even more violent robbery, in Whole Foods parking lot a few years back. The short version if not using the link: Thief ripped off necklace, then cut off finger for $90,000 ring. http://www.wfaa.com/story/news/crime/2014/08/06/13487160/
