Security guard injured in gunfight outside NW Houston grocery store
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A gunfight outside a grocery store in northwest Houston left a security guard in the hospital.
This happened at the Food Town on Antoine and Pinemont around 11pm.
Houston police say the security guard for the shopping center was patrolling the parking lot, when he noticed two men and one of them was carrying a shotgun. That's when police say the security guard pulled out his pistol and a gunfight began.
Authorities say the security guard was able to fire numerous shots before he was shot once in the back of the head with birdshot. The suspects ran away.
"We are checking the hospitals right now to see if anybody comes in with a gunshot wound," said Lt. Larry Crowson with the Houston Police Department. "We didn't find any blood in the parking lot. So as far as we know they may or may not have been hit."
The security guard was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police are still searching for the suspects.
