Police searching for armed robber

LEAGUE CITY

Police are searching for a man who robbed a Citgo store with a gun late Wednesday and took more than $600, officials announced Thursday.

A man wearing black clothing and a ski mask entered the store at 351 FM 646 about 10:50 p.m., pointed a black pistol at the clerk and demanded money from the cash register, said Kelly Williamson, spokesman for the League City Police Department.

The gunman told the clerk he’d shoot her if she didn’t give him all the money, Williamson said.

The woman told police she gave the robber between $600 and $700 from the register and he left, disappearing into a field south of the store, police said.

Investigators arrived and set up a perimeter, searching the area for about an hour using K9 officers and a drone, Williamson said.

Police make arrest in June 4 shooting

FRIENDSWOOD

Police have arrested a man in connection with a June 4 shooting that sent one man to the hospital with a gunshot wound, officials announced Thursday.

Investigators arrested a 19-year-old man late Wednesday after receiving a warrant from a Harris County judge, police said.

The man is accused of shooting another man during a drug exchange in the 3000 block of Autumn Creek Drive, police said.

The victim is still hospitalized with a gunshot wound as of Thursday afternoon.

While police say the man had been charged Thursday, the case had not appeared in Harris County courts as of Thursday afternoon, court records show.

The Daily News does not name people as having been charged with crimes until official confirmation can be made.
