Robber, Clerk Killed In Separate Store Shootings

A robber and a clerk died in shootings at two separate convenience stores in the Houston area, KPRC Local 2 reported Friday.

The latest shooting happened at the Tony’s Express Store in the 4000 block of Synott in southwest Houston.

Investigators said just before 3 a.m., a store clerk shot two robbers who were stealing money from the register.

The robbers ran out of the store, drove around the corner in a pickup truck, and then crashed into the cab of a parked 18-wheeler, police said. The driver of the pickup died behind the wheel.

“At that point, the passenger jumped from the truck and fled the scene, ran down the street to another apartment. He was later apprehended and he is currently at Ben Taub Hospital with unknown injuries,” Houston police Detective Roger Chappell told KPRC Local 2.
