HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A burglary at a gun shop led to the shooting death of one of the suspects, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted that the gun shop owner, who is also a 79-year-old military veteran, exchanged gunfire with the burglary suspects and one of the suspects was later found dead in a roadway from a gunshot wound.
The investigation is still unfolding at two different scenes in northeast Harris County, not far from Crosby.
Deputies said it was about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday when the owner of the gun shop, who also lives on the property in the 2000 block of Kennings, said he heard commotion outside. When he stepped out to see what was going on he saw several suspects and a vehicle chained to the front door of his gun shop.
