UPDATE: Houston police investigating an officer-involved shooting during a robbery

Friday night, around 9:30 P.M. a Valero station at Lawndale and Greens in southeast Houston was the target for two would-be robbers.
It just so happened that an off duty police officer, who is a 20 year veteran, noticed the robbery in progress.
A look-out was outside the store, the other man inside attempting to rob the cashier. The look-out alerted the gunman and he pointed his gun at the approaching officer. The officer shot and struck the gunman. The look-out then gave himself up without further incident.
The wounded suspect is in critical condition at Ben Taub Hospital
As is customary in HPD officer-involved shooting incidents in the city limits, this case is being investigated by the HPD Homicide and Internal Affairs Divisions, as well as the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
