Would-be robbery victim kills suspect in bar parking lot

HOUSTON

It happened around 11pm Saturday near the Chymistry Bar and Lounge on Almeda Genoa near Monarch in southwest Houston. Police say a man and his wife had pulled into a parking lot to go into the bar when they were confronted by the suspect who was armed with a pistol.

The man pulled out a gun of his own and fired. The suspect was killed. No one else was injured.

:This is definitely going to be a referral to a grand jury to determine if charges are going to be filed," said Travis Miller with HPD Homicide.

It's not clear if the intended victim has a concealed weapons license. A grand jury will decide whether or not charges will be filed in the case.
