Four arrested in connection with New Year's Day robbery, Steve Campion reports.

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Eyewitness News can confirm four arrests in connection to the deadly New Year's Day robbery at Huong Giang Hue Restaurant off Bellaire Boulevard.

The four suspects arrested, now stand as accused killers.

Investigators told abc13 that the alleged shooters stormed into the packed eatery around 8:40 that evening.

They forced customers to the ground, went table to table robbing people, and stole from the cash registers.

Detectives said when Herman "Ray" Browning Jr. fought back, the crooks shot him dead in front of his family.

His sister, Geneva Browning, spoke with abc13's Steve Campion Saturday evening. She said the loss and sense of disbelief remains overwhelming.

"Life isn't valued anymore. I don't know if it's our society. Life has little meaning to so many people out there now. It's sad because every life is precious. They are throwing away people's lives like its trash. It's not," said Browning. "Ray was a really good guy, a really good guy. He was upstanding, responsible, reliable, and dependable. If you ever needed anything, he would be there for you. No questions asked."

Geneva Browning did not want to comment directly on Saturday's arrests. She stressed her entire family is grateful to police for their hard work.

Court documents confirm those arrested are Enzo Ubadimma and Telavell Coleman, both 18. Also arrested were 19-year-old Dadriana Holmes, and 20-year-old Tiala Alexander.

Two of those charged have already appeared before a judge.

Ray Browning leaves behind a wife and 8-year old-son.
