Suspects fled after shootout
An off-duty Houston police officer has been credited with foiling the plans of some armed robbers in southwest Houston.
Investigators said around 8:40 p.m. Saturday, an off-duty Houston police officer was working an approved extra job at the Radio Shack in the 1000 block of North Gessner near the Katy Freeway.
Three masked crooks walked in, and one of them pointed a gun directly at the officer, police said. That's when the officer pulled his own gun and opened fire, investigators said.
