Walgreens security guard opens fire on 2 masked, armed teens; 1 dies at hospital

A security guard at a Walgreens on FM 1960 opened fire on two armed, masked teens who were preparing to enter the store, critically wounding one of the suspects. He later died at the hospital.

The double shooting happened around midnight on Saturday night at the Walgreens at FM 1960 and Ella Boulevard in northeast Harris County, just west of Interstate 45.

Lt. L.R. Rush of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office told Metro Video that two cousins, ages 18 and 16, approached the store in what authorities believe was a planned robbery. They did not see the security guard, who came from around the corner and approached the pair. He told them to stop, at which time one of the armed men pulled a gun from his waist band and pointed it at the guard.
