A man suspected in a Pizza Hut robbery on Tuesday shot and killed himself as authorities tried to arrest him at a home in The Woodlands, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
The 19-year-old suspect, who deputies declined to identify, was one of two men facing charges in a robbery Sunday at the pizza shop in the 18500 block of Kuykendahl. The other suspect, a 21-year-old man, was arrested Monday on the aggravated robbery charge.
On Tuesday, Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators were staking out the home on Canyon Oak Place in The Woodlands. After they approached the home to serve the warrant, they heard the suspect fire one round inside, authorities said.
Montgomery County SWAT officers were then called to the scene and eventually confirmed the suspect was dead inside the home with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The original robbery occurred around 1 p.m. Sunday at the pizza shop at 18539 Kuykendahl. Two men entered the store and attempted to rob the restaurant at gunpoint. An employee confronted the would-be robbers, who shot at the man with a handgun.
The employee was taken to a hospital and remains in critical but stable condition.
