LEAGUE CITY, Texas (KTRK) -- A deputy-involved shooting in League City overnight left a suspected robber dead outside of a convenience store.

Galveston County sheriff's deputies responded to a possible robbery call at a convenience store along Tuscan Lakes Boulevard and FM-646 around 9:30 p.m.

The deputy involved was 100 yards away and said the suspect came out of the store with a handgun.

That's when authorities say the shootout began.

"He pulled in the parking lot and...the individual exited the store, brandishing a handgun and charged the officer," Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset said.

The suspect died at the scene.

The deputy is shaken up, but is said to be okay.

The Galveston County district attorney's office is investigating.

Good outcome! Wish the Deputy the best knowing that self preservation of the Deputy's life and protection of others did prevail!

Another sub-species of a human laid to waist. If you need a gun to make your money by robbing, stealing, cheating, and murdering in this world, we do not need you around. The only reason I carry is to protect myself from fodder like this fella.

A lot of Law Enforcement shootings lately and this one turned out good thank God! I know this Deputy will get a lot of support and his courage will be in the hearts and minds of citizens and Law Enforcement Officers everywhere.
