HOUSTON -

An infant was inside a car when his father fatally shot a man during a robbery, investigators said.

Houston police said a 23-year-old man, his girlfriend and their infant son went to the 10800 block of South Gessner about 9 p.m. on Friday to buy some cellphones from men they did not know.

Detectives said Louis Michael Albert, 19, who was armed with a loaded shotgun, tried to get inside the family's car and rob them.

The 23-year-old, who was in the back seat of the car, couldn't get out of the car because the child safety locks were on, police said. He pulled out a pistol and fatally shot Albert, police said.

The case will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.
