At 8:43pm Tuesday a Montgomery County Deputy Sheriff was working an extra job at the Raising Canes Chicken Finger Restaurant on Research Forest Drive in The Woodlands. That is when a black mal entered through a side door and attempted to get into the cash register. All this with customers and employees in the store. He then grabbed a female manager and attempted to grab another female. The second female was able to flee to the back with the other employees. That is when the Deputy emerged. According to Bralin Henderson an employee in the business, the robber hadn’t yet displayed a weapon but kept his hand in his pocket. He said, “it wasn’t just there, he was grabbing something.” He then told the deputy, “know I am notgoing to hurt her.” He said the deputy once again told him to drop his weapon. The robber stil did not comply so the deputy shot him. Henderson said it wasn’t loud so he thought it was an air presurized gun. Henderson said one co-worker went into shock along with a customer. Another employee was grazed by the bullet. According to Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Brady Fitzgerald, at least two persons were transported to the hospital by MCHD. The robber was pronounced dead on the scene. Henderson said he grew up in Alief and been in a situation like this before and really wasn’t scared. His mother on the other hand was the complete opposite. She said she was coming to pick her son up from work and everything was roped off. A deputy told her there had been a shooting and she could not pass through. That is when someone told her someone got shot. She said her heart dropped and she started to completely lose her mind as she did not know if her son was shot.
The scene cleared just after 2am. The Texas Rangers and Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office is assisting in the investigation. Additional details and identification of the suspect are expected later today.
As for Henderson, he said the deputy that shot the suspect saved the day.
Raising Cain… Darn good chicken.
Robber dropped… Like a Sack-O-Crap.
