A man was robbed and shot at a METRO bus stop in southwest Harris County.Investigators say the robber approached the victim on Bellaire near Addicks Clodine last night. The suspect demanded money and then shot the man several times. The victim ran to a bystander for help.

"I heard the gunshots and it sounded like firecrackers to me, so I thought he was joking," said eyewitness Henry Mills. "He came up closer. I saw the flesh wound, and he was really shot. So I called 911 and did what I could do."

The victim died at the hospital. The shooter tried to flee on a bicycle, but an off-duty sheriff's deputy who saw the shooting tackled and held the shooter until authorities arrived.
