Following the shooting, Houston was rushed to a nearby hospital for urgent medical attention. He succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.

Law enforcement officials indicated that surveillance footage from the business corroborated the man’s version of events leading up to the shooting. Based on the evidence and circumstances, authorities have stated that no charges are anticipated against the man involved in the shooting, reasoning that the incident appears to be a case of self-defense.

Nevertheless, as standard protocol, the case will be forwarded to the Angelina County District Attorney’s Office for further review and consideration.
