Harris County deputy shoots suspect behind Family Dollar

HARRIS COUNTY - by KHOU 11 News and

A Harris County Sheriff's Office deputy shot a robbery suspect Wednesday evening at a Family Dollar store in north Harris County.

It happened around 9 p.m. Wednesday at the store on Kuykendahl Road near Ella Blvd.

A manager inside the store called 911 as the gunman walked in, deputies said. The manager told authorities the suspect looked like a man involved in a previous robbery at the store.

The gunman went out the back as authorities arrived and one deputy, fearing for his life, fired two shots at the suspect. The suspect never returned fire.

Officials said the suspect was sent to the hospital in critical condition.

"No deputies were injured," said Thomas Gilliland with the sheriff's office. "There were some employees in the building as well, also three customers. They were all fine, no one was injured in the exchange that occurred outside the building on the back of the property."

This Family Dollar is the same location as a SWAT scene in May. In that case, armed men forced customers and employees to the back of the store before getting away. Shots were fired, but no injuries were reported.

The store was robbed at least two times in 2013 as well.
