Gun Control in Jersey Village

A trio of would-be carjackers picked the wrong victim in Jersey Village (northwest Houston) yesterday.
A female off-duty Richmond police officer put her training into action when three alleged carjackers forced her into her SUV and attempted to steal it.
Two of the three suspects were armed, according to Jersey Village Police. One suspect pushed Officer Holly Marie Mong over into the passenger seat.

Authorities said the 22-year-old officer's instincts and training kicked in, even though she'd been with the department less than six months.

"At that time she pulled her weapon and fired several rounds, striking both of the assailants," said Jersey Village Police Chief Charles Wedemeyer.

Authorities said Mong shot and killed one suspect and shot another suspect five times.
Six out of six -- now that's what I call gun control!

Nice job to Officer Mong! Looks like the smartest member of this group of kids was the one hiding in the back seat of the getaway car!
