According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, investigators in the 17700 block of W. Lake Houston Parkway and tried to arrest a person of interest in the fatal shooting of a Cracker Barrel manager. Gonzalez added that the man has two, unrelated criminal convictions.


During the arrest attempt, deputies fired their weapons and hit the man. Gonzalez said the suspect was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The man's name has not been released at this time.

Gonzalez said the man who was shot is a person of interest in the fact that 59-year-old Robin Baucom was killed while trying to help an employee during a robbery attempt.

The robbery happened Saturday morning. Deputies said Baucom was at work before the restaurant opened. Another employee who was waiting to be locked in around noon. 6:15, was approached by two men in a Dodge Charger. According to deputies, the man in the passenger seat got out of the car and tried to steal the employee's wallet.

Baucom came to the employee's rescue and let her in while he pushed the door back to stop the man forcing himself in. That was when the suspect pulled out a gun and shot Baucom, who later died at the hospital, deputies said.
