The Harris County Sheriff's Office is investigating after the owner of a mobile taqueria was shot to death Saturday during a robbery in northwest Harris County.

It happened just before 3:30pm in a gas station parking lot in the 8100 block of Fairbanks North Houston Road.

According to HCSO Homicide detectives, the food truck owner was fatally shot during a robbery. The victim -- identified as Lorenzo Juan Vasqez, 53 -- was dead by the time emergency responders arrived.

Detectives do not have much information on the suspects. They are described only as two Hispanic males. The suspects fled the scene and remain at large.

Officials said Vasqez's wife was there, but she was not injured. It's unclear whether anything was stolen.

Anyone with information on this crime can call HCSO at 713-967-5810 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
