A teen worker was shot and killed in front of his mom during an armed robbery at a Subway restaurant Wednesday evening, police in southeast Houston say.
Family members have since identified the victim as Javier Flores, a student at Chavez High School.
According to the Houston Police Department, it was around 8 p.m. when the 18-year-old was working at the restaurant and was shot in the neck by one of two robbery suspects.
Police said the victim's mother was working in the restaurant as well when the suspects walked in.
"During the robbery, it appears the black males entered the store, pointed a gun at a female employee who ended up being the victim's mother. (The victim) tried to intervene and when he confronted the guy with the gun, he was shot." said Detective David Crowder.
