Reward Set to $40,000 to Find Robbers Who Killed Texas Teen While Protecting His Mother

Last Wednesday, news was reported that 18-year-old Javier Flores, a junior at Cesar Chavez High School in Houston, was shot and killed in an armed robbery at Subway. Him and his mother were the only two employees working at around 8 p.m. when two men entered with a gun and pointed at the woman. Her son tried to protect his mother and was shot in the neck.

He tried to run to the back room to call for help and was shot again. The burglars left empty-handed but had impacted the community and young lives forever. It was reported that the two assailants who sped away in a gold colored, four-door sedan robbed another Subway 30 minutes later.

Police have released a sketch of one of the suspects.

This tragedy has not seen justice come to light yet and as a result there is now a $40,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the two people involved in the fatal shooting of Flores.

The mother told local news that he bleeding son died on the floor of the Subway store and that the robbers fled empty-handed. She also said:

"Just turn them in. [If they did this to her son], they’re going to do it to anybody."
