HOUSTON - A security guard at an area drugstore stopped a man and a teenager from robbing the store.

Deputies said the guard took all the right measures. The incident happened at the Walgreens in the 1400 block of Farm-to-Market 1960 in north Harris County around midnight.

Deputies said the man and teenager walked up to the store and pulled out a weapon. That's when the security guard shot both of them.

A 16-year-old was taken to an area hospital, where he later died. The other, identified as an 18-year-old man, was shot in the leg.  

Deputies said the two are cousins and are believed to be connected to other robberies.

A charge of aggravated robbery was accepted against the 18-year-old, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
