Store Owner Kills Robber

The owner of a northwest Harris County grocery store shoots and kills an armed robber.

The store owner was also wounded in the exchange of gunfire during the attempted holdup.

Police say it happened around 10:30 last night at Lakewood Food Mart on Cedar Point and Grant Road. The owner was shot in the arm, but managed to get his gun and return fire.

Both were transported to the hospital, where the gunman died.

Police are still looking for a possible accomplice, saying a woman in a hoodie may have been acting as a getaway driver.
