Store owner with gun stops robbery attempt

A woman shot two of the three men who tried to rob her plumbing business north of downtown, police said.

Andrea McNabb was in a back office when the men tried to rob Rocket Services Co. in the 6300 block of Jensen at 4:15 p.m. Monday, police said. McNabb shot at the men, who then ran.

Police said Marco Shrepee, 24, was shot in the back and stole one of the owner's cars to drive himself to LBJ Hospital, where he was arrested. Perry Gene Smith, 20, shot in the leg, was arrested two blocks from the plumbing shop.

Shrepee was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, Smith with one count. Both were in fair condition Tuesday, hospital officials said. The third man escaped.
