Authorities have made one arrest and continue to investigate an attempted armed robbery Wednesday at an area cell phone store, where police say an off-duty state trooper fired his weapon.
The Houston Police Department said Friday that Michael Landry, 22, was arrested and charged with attempted aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in connection with the incident, which occurred at about 2:20 p.m. Wednesday at the AT&T Store at 10650 Northwest Fwy. HPD said two other suspects, which the department described as black males, remain at large.
HPD said its officers responded to a robbery call at the business, where a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper was working an extra job and three suspects were seen armed and exiting a black Toyota Corolla before entering the store and allegedly attempting to rob it. The trooper fired his gun one time at the suspects, who then fled on foot, according to HPD.
Police said Landry was not injured and it is unknown if either of the other two suspects was struck by gunfire. HPD said its Homicide Division Special Investigations Unit is investigating the case along with the DPS Texas Ranger Division and HPD’s Robbery Division.
Anyone with information about the two wanted suspects is encouraged to call HPD at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
