Houston police SWAT officers thwarted an armored car robbery wounding one suspect and arresting two others in southwest Houston.

This happened just before noon in the 16100 block of South Post Oak Road near Court Road.

HPD Executive Asst. Chief Matt Slinkard says they have increased police presence in the area due to recent armored car robberies including having SWAT officers work undercover inside some of the trucks being targeted.

On Friday morning, SWAT officers in a marked patrol unit say they witnessed three suspects in a stolen white F-250 pickup truck put masks on in preparation for an armored car robbery near a strip center that contains a La Michoacana Meat Market and Walgreens along South Post Oak.

  Woman wanted for robbery found murdered; suspected male accomplice sought The woman, who was found dead from a gunshot to the head, has been identified as Baylee Wall, 18, who was wanted in connection to a hotel robbery in Alabama.The body of Baylee Wall, of Mississippi, was discovered Wednesday in a wooded area near Woodward Career Technical High School in Cincinnati, according to the city’s NBC affiliate WLWT.

However, since the driver of the armored truck never exited the vehicle, the suspects backed off realizing the robbery would not be successful, police said.

The suspects then drove behind the strip and were followed by the SWAT officer in the marked patrol unit, police say. The officers attempted a pit maneuver on the stolen truck to stop the vehicle but were unsuccessful.

Two of the suspects exited the truck and were apprehended after running towards the front of the strip center, police said.

Police say a third suspect exited the passenger side of the stolen truck brandishing an AR-15 rifle and exchanged gunfire with SWAT officers. The suspect was wounded in the exchange.

Police began applying first aid to the suspect before he was airlifted by Life Flight in critical condition to a local hospital.
