HPD: Photo lineup leads to donut shop robbery suspect's ID

Detectives have filed charges against one of two suspects accused in the violent robbery of a donut shop in northwest Houston.

During the Monday morning robbery of a Shipley's on Little York, two gunmen ambushed employees after they opened and locked them in a back office.

HPD Capt. Lori Bender says they used a photo lineup to identify the suspect who allegedly fired a shot in the air, and the Harris County District Attorney's Office has accepted charges against him. His name has not yet been publicly released.

Police are still working to identify the second suspect in that case and working on another photo lineup to determine whether the suspects in this case are also responsible for a second violent robbery at another donut shop the next morning. In that robbery, the store's owner was shot several times and taken to Ben Taub General Hospital, where he remains hospitalized.
