Alleged robber shot by store employees in NW Houston

HOUSTON - Two suspects in a cell phone robbery were chased down and one of them shot at a Fiesta grocery store in northwest Houston.

The suspects were pursued by employees at Houston Cellular Hospital store on West Road all the way to the parking lot of the Fiesta on West Mount Houston after they tried to rob the cell phone store.

The employees shot one of the alleged thieves in the back and then put him in the back of his own vehicle. They were trying to bring him back to the cell phone store, but the suspect ran off.

We're told he was picked up on High Manor Drive by EMS and taken to the hospital.

The other suspect is still on the loose.

There is no word on what if any charges the suspect or the gunman will face.
