HOUSTON (AP) - A pawn shop worker fatally shot a 50-year-old
customer after the man loaded a handgun from the case with his own
ammo, left the store and fired a round at the employee.
The Houston Chronicle reported Sunday that Melvin Clark, a
regular customer entered Northwest Pawn Shop on Saturday afternoon
and asked to see a pistol. The employee loaded the own ammo, with
the store employee's approval.
Clark left the store, turned and fired at the employee.
Officials say the employee returned fire, killing Clark.
The case has been referred without charges to a Harris County
