A restaurant customer in Texas who shot and killed an armed robber will face a grand jury, according to the Houston police.
“The fatal shooting of a robbery suspect at 6873 South Gessner Road about 11:30 p.m. last Thursday (Jan. 5) will be referred to a Harris County grand jury,” said police.
On Jan. 9th, the unnamed man, 46, was questioned by Houston police homicide detectives in the presence of his attorney.

“After consulting with members of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, it was determined the shooting will be referred to a grand jury. Since the male is not arrested or charged, his identity is not being released at this time,” police said.
The deceased robbery suspect is identified as Eric Eugene Washington, 30.
Security footage captured the moment when a customer fatally shot an armed robber who pointed a gun at multiple customers inside a restaurant in southwest Houston, Texas, last Thursday night.
Officers were dispatched to a shooting call at the restaurant and found an unknown black male in all-black clothing, a black ski mask, and black gloves had been shot multiple times inside the business. Paramedics pronounced him deceased.
Witnesses told officers the suspect entered the restaurant and pointed a pistol at patrons as he demanded their money. As the suspect collected money from patrons, one of the patrons, described as a white or Hispanic male, produced a gun of his own and shot the suspect multiple times.

The shooter collected the stolen money from the suspect and returned the money to other patrons. He and other patrons (victims) then fled the scene.
