Accused Robber Begs for Life After Being Shot by Armed Guard

A man screamed out, “I’m sorry, bro,” moments after a security guard shot him in the leg.

The shooting happened Monday around 11 a.m. near Fresh Ink Tattoo & Piercing at 10716 Gulf Freeway in southeast Houston.

HPD detectives told ABC13 the injured man is an accused robber. He targeted an illegal game room in the shopping plaza. When he ran out with money, the game room’s guard went after him and opened fire.

“The suspect was able to get into his vehicle and fled the scene,” said Det. Gerald Robertson. “He is expected to survive from his injuries.” Source
