HOUSTON – Shopping, I mean, shoplifting…can be deadly. Especially when you get caught and try to run over a sheriff’s deputy.

A woman was shot and killed by an off-duty Harris County Sheriff’s deputy working security at the Walmart on West Road.

The victim was seen with her partner in crime stuffing her purse full of goodies.

But, when the uniformed officer approached the ladies as they left the store, he was smacked with the goodie bag and the victim took off for her car. That’s when the suspected shoplifters drug the deputy in the parking lot as they attempted to get away.

The deputy managed to get his gun and fired off one round. The suspects did manage to get away, but they didn’t get far.

Reports of a shooting about a mile away brought investigators to the suspect’s car.

One of the suspects was arrested, but the second female was pronounced dead at the scene.

Just a reminder, crime doesn’t pay.
