HOUSTON, TEXAS — In a recent incident in northwest Houston, a robbery suspect was fatally shot by a bystander at a Chevron gas station around midnight. The event took place at the Zip In-Zip Out station located in the 11000 block of Ella Boulevard, as confirmed by the Houston Police Department (HPD).

Lt. Wilkins from HPD detailed the situation where a man, accompanied by his girlfriend in a car, was attacked while refueling. The assailant, a young adult male, demanded the man’s valuables and assaulted him with a pistol before snatching his wallet and fleeing. A witness parked nearby intervened by shooting the suspect at least twice in the upper torso.

Despite efforts by HFD paramedics to save the suspect, he was declared dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. The shooter, whose identity remains unknown, had left the scene before authorities arrived. Meanwhile, the robbery victim, who managed to recover his stolen items, is assisting law enforcement with their inquiries.

The case is still under investigation, with no further updates on the whereabouts or identity of the bystander who shot the suspect.

If you’re ever involved in a shooting, it’s essential to wait for police to arrive if the scene is safe. If it’s not, call 911 to alert them of the fact that you had to use your firearm in self-defense and follow their next steps, which would likely be being asked to come to the police station for a statement. Never flee without calling police.
