Two suspects thought the owner of a Houston, Texas, gun store had left for the day when they attempted to break into the establishment on Tuesday morning, according to police -- but they quickly learned how wrong their assumption was.

As the men allegedly entered through the front door, the owner of the gun store emerged with a shotgun and opened fire. He hit of the suspects fatally and the second suspect ran for his life, officials said. The second suspect remains at large.

Police said there were “no shots fired from the suspects.”

When a police spokeswoman was asked by KTRK-TV what she thought about "crooks who try to break into gun shops," she laughed and replied, "It's Houston."

Police said a Harris County grand jury will decide if the gun shop owner will face any charges related to the incident.
