HOUSTON (AP) - Investigators say officers fatally shot a 16-year-old armed robbery suspect and wounded two others during a Houston-area restaurant holdup.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says an 18-year-old suspect was arrested Monday night in a nearby vehicle.

A sheriff’s statement Tuesday said three suspects, wearing hoodies and bandannas, were seen running toward the fast-food restaurant. Authorities say two suspects had guns and took money from the cash drawers.

Officers confronted the fleeing suspects. The sheriff’s statement says the suspects fired on officers, who returned fire and shot all three teens. No officers were hurt.

Officials say the 16-year-old suspect died at a hospital. A 15-year-old boy was hospitalized in critical condition. A 17-year-old, who suffered lesser injuries, and the unharmed 18-year-old were charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
