One of my favorite stories coming out of Houston this week is the one where a woman shows up at her father’s workplace armed with a bow and arrow and a gun. (The gun later turned out to be fake.)
Police are still trying to determine the motive for the incident. Officers said the violence erupted after Parker came into the office in the 1600 block of West Sam Houston Parkway with a hunting bow and arrows and what appeared to be a handgun about 3 p.m. Monday.
Don’t mess around like this in Texas, though, because here’s what happened next:
After walking into the company’s micro-electronics division, Parker shot [her victim] with an arrow and then pointed the apparent gun at two other employees, police said.
Those employees, who are licensed to carry concealed handguns, fired “numerous” shots at Parker, hitting her several times, investigators said.
The moral: Don’t take a bow and arrow to a gun fight.
Second moral: Be careful who you threaten in Texas; you never know if they’re packin’.
