Armed Robbery Suspect Shot By Victim in Lufkin, Texas

Lufkin, Texas

From August 20, 2008 KTRE channel 9:

At 10:36 Sunday night, restaurant manager Katie Jeffreys left Catfish King with the night deposit after closing up.

Her boyfriend, Keith Labrozzi, had come to pick her up and their next stop was the bank. But they never made it. A robber surprised them with gunfire in the parking lot.

"Mr. Labrozzi had a concealed handgun permit and he was armed. He exchanged gunfire with the suspect. Mr. Labrozzi had several gunshot wounds and died a short time later at the hospital," says LT. David Young with the Lufkin Police.

Young says Labrozzi fired at the suspect, 19-year-old Brian Martin Womack of Hudson, hitting him in the stomach.

Katie Jeffreys was shot in the foot, but managed to crawl under her SUV and call 911 before trying to give her boyfriend CPR.
