Houston-Area Man Fatally Shot Trying to Save Teen Neighbor

Moyses Arreguin apparently spotted the confrontation, ran over and used a baseball bat on one of the robbers before he was shot several times

Harris County authorities say they’re seeking at least three suspects for the shooting death of a good Samaritan who tried to save a 16-year-old neighbor from being robbed at gunpoint.

Sergio Bruno said the 29-year-old shooting victim, Moyses Arreguin, was like a brother to him. He said he was chatting Friday night with Arreguin, who lived a few homes away, and then was sitting on the back of his truck alone when men who had been driving on the street jumped out of their car, pulled a gun on him and demanded cash.

Arreguin apparently spotted the confrontation, ran over and used a baseball bat on one of the robbers before he was shot several times.

The armed attackers fled in their car.
