August 4, 2014 - Houston police have arrested three suspects wanted for firing shots inside a business during a robbery at 9820 North Freeway service road about 3:10 a.m. on April 13.
The suspects, all juvenile males, ages 16, 15 and 15, are referred to Harris County Juvenile Probation authorities on charges of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
Surveillance video of the suspects was posted on the HPD YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-8HiLpxYLs on April 30.
HPD Robbery Division Senior Police Officer J. Brieden reported:
The suspects entered the Katz Boutique at the above address to rob the business. One suspect was armed with a rifle and another suspect had a revolver. During the robbery, the suspect with the revolver apparently bumped into the suspect with the rifle, causing the rifle to discharge. At that time, both males fired their weapons toward store employees as they ran out the door. A third suspect, serving as a look-out person, also fled the scene.
No one was injured in the incident.
Investigators received information from Aldine Independent School District police officers on the possible identities of the suspects. Further investigation revealed the 16-year-old suspect was armed with the M-14 rifle. He was arrested on May 30. The look-out suspect was taken into custody on June 4 and the final suspect was apprehended on July 24. All three remain in custody at the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center.
