HOUSTON - Police say a 37-year-old man died after he was shot in front of his daughter during a robbery in west Houston.
Authorities say the shooting occurred around 10 p.m. Sunday in a parking lot in the 7600 block of the Katy Freeway.
According to police, the family had arrived at a Dave & Buster's a few hours before the shooting. Later, police say, the father was walking to his vehicle in the parking lot when a male suspect attempted to rob him at gunpoint.
Police say the father was shot near his car and then went back to the front of the Dave & Buster's for help.
He was taken to the hospital, where he later passed away.
Police say the victim was with his daughter at the time of the robbery. She was not injured.
"It's going to be difficult to have her recall the incident, because at this point she is one of our only witnesses to the actual incident," Detective Jason Escobar said. "We are working hopefully to get surveillance video at the location."
The suspects are described only as two to three unknown males.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
