BAYTOWN, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a security guard at a suspected illegal gaming room in the Houston area has been fatally shot during a robbery.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says the slaying happened Sunday in Baytown. Investigators on Monday did not immediately return a message on whether any suspects have been arrested.
Authorities say three men who allegedly were gambling drew guns, the guard was shot and the suspects fled with an undetermined amount of cash.
The victim’s name and further details about his death were not immediately released.
