Unidentified Robber Crushed by Pursuing Car, Bayou Body Count No. 107
A man who tried to rob a northside business this morning was pursued and killed when he ran into traffic, Houston police say.
The unidentified robbery suspect died about 9:45 a.m. after running from a store in the 100 block of Little York.
The owner of the business chased him in his car; the robber fired at least one shot at him, media reports say. At one point the driver pinned the man against a fence, but he escaped only to get hit by a car.
The driver of the car that hit him did not stop, and police are looking for him or her.
