HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A man was shot by a nine-month pregnant woman and her husband after surveillance video shows him attacking the couple in front of a north Houston gas station Tuesday evening.
“No, they were not taking out my baby daddy before July 11,” the woman said, referring to her due date.
The shooting happened at about 5:25 p.m. Tuesday at 8605 Fulton Street.
The husband said the man, who police have since identified as 39-year-old Mario Duque, repeatedly asked him, “Do you want to die tonight?” Surveillance video shows the couple ignoring Duque, who pointed a gun at them multiple times.
The video also shows Duque approaching the husband and pistol-whipping him. The wife pulled a gun out of her bag and shot Duque, who continued pointing his weapon at the couple. The husband also shot him.
“Thank God we had our guns. I’ve never been happier to be a gun carrier,” the woman said.
The couple held Duque at gunpoint until medical attention arrived.
“A bystander told him, ‘Hey man, if you think you’re dying, you might as well pray to God for forgiveness,'” the husband said.
