HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A Harris County couple is heartbroken after their son was found dead behind the family donut shop Tuesday.

Brandon Song, 21, had been running the Fantastic Donut Shop because his father was shot and critically wounded by robbers last September. Crise Song, 41, is still recovering from bullet wounds to his abdomen and leg.

The son's body was found around 8:30 a.m. at the shop in the 14700 block of Highway 249 in northwest Harris County.

After investigating, Harris County deputies determined that Song killed himself.

Crise Song has owned the donut shop for a few years and he and his son are well-known in the neighborhood.

Some customers broke down in tears Tuesday when they heard about the son's death.

The suspects in the first robbery were never caught.
