Spring, Texas – August 8th, 2016: A robbery suspect is in critical condition after being shot 12 times by an off duty Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy during a robbery at a Spring area Whataburger.
Officials tell us that the robbery took place during the early morning hours, Monday. Two armed men entered the Whataburger located near FM 2920 and Spring Cypress with pistols and demanded money from the cashier. Two off-duty Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies that were eating at the establisment jumped into action, striking one of the suspects “around 12 times”. The second suspect was able to get away.
Investigators have a very large area of the shopping center barricaded off due to an ongoing investigation. (Whataburger, Chase Bank, Walgreens & parts of the HEB parking lot). Investigators did recover both pistols in the parking lot.
We have been told that the suspect that was shot is listed in critical condition.
A description of the suspect that is on the run is not currently available.
We’re following this story closely and will publish additional details as they become available.
