Midweek gets busy along the Grand Parkway

By LeaAnne Klentzman 

Sheriff’s deputies were kept busy last Wednesday with three gun related cases along the Grand Parkway.

The first case was an armed robbery at the Seven Eleven store in the 5700 block of New Territory. In that case a man described as either Middle Eastern or Asian walked into the store about 3:37 in the morning, pulled a gun and demanded cash. Cash was handed over and the armed robber left. He was described as about 5’2” weighing 130 pounds, with dark bushy eyebrows, wearing black with a black bandana covering his face.

Fast forward a few hours and a few miles north up the Grand Parkway to a grocery store parking lot near the intersection of Texas 99/the Grand Parkway and S Fry Road in north central Fort Bend County where a man was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the torso in the parking lot of a Katy area grocery store. Officers responded to that case shortly after 6 pm.

While public details remain slim on the case, law enforcement personnel have indicated that the two men involved likely know one another. Robbery was ruled out as the victim was still in possession of his wallet. He was taken to the hospital with what deputies called non-life threatening injuries.

The night of June 11 came to a close with a third gun related case; another armed robbery. This case, too, was along Texas 99/The Grand Parkway about a mile or so north of the shooting incident in the grocery parking lot. No details were available at press time on this case only that it happened near the northbound intersection of Highland Knolls and the Grand Parkway at 11:20pm.
