A man shot and killed a suspected armed r0bber Thursday during a gun battle in a northeast Harris County shopping center parking lot.
The 28-year-old man, a former Marine, was eating lunch about 12:30 p.m. when he saw two suspicious men outside a Game Stop store along Wallisville near the East Sam Houston Tollway, authorities said.
“He saw them get out of their car and slip bandanas over their faces,” said Deputy Thomas Gilliland with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
The veteran, who has not been identified, saw the men open the trunk of their car then dash inside the store. Minutes later, one ran out carrying several video game systems in his arms.
