    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- It was a cold blooded murder. Now four suspects are accused of a deadly robbery at a local Denny's restaurant. During that robbery, a customer was shot and killed as he tried to protect children from the violent suspects. Two of them are now in custody but two others are still at large.

    PORT ARTHUR — A Port Arthur native and Katy resident who was shot to death trying to shield children during a violent armed robbery at a Houston Denny’s restaurant is being lauded as a hero.

    Greig Placette, 64, was shot twice, once in the chest and once in the shoulder while trying to protect children inside the restaurant who were dining with their family at a table next to his, said The Rev. David Placette, Greig Placette’s cousin.

    Has the one who had a previous felony bonded out, or was for a different thing before the cops got a tip about the robbery and murder? I didn't quite understand.

    Yes, police had all three suspects in custody about an hour after the robbery/murder, but that was for unrelated incident so they were let go. Then after police identified them as suspects in robbery/murder, they were arrested, except for the one who is on the run.
