HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS - A man was fatally shot during a home invasion Monday, and his younger brother was assaulted by the suspects.
According to the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office, police responded to a shooting in the 21500 block of Canvasback Glen Ct. around 8:45 p.m. on Sunday.
When deputies arrived, they learned that two suspects forced entry into the home and demanded money. One of the suspects fatally shot the homeowner, identified as Adrianus Michael Kusuma. His younger brother was identified by friends as Sebastian Kusuma.
"I think the community feels victimized," Addy Werthwein said. "The brothers are such kind people. My son's favorite restaurant. Favorite french toast."
Kusuma worked at the Sunny Side of the Street Cafe as a cook. A memorial is growing outside of the restaurant. Werthwin was one of several people who stopped by the restaurant to drop off flowers, candles and leave behind heartfelt notes on the window.
According to police, the suspects got away with an undetermined amount of cash and fled the scene in a white car. Investigators believe they may have been targeted because of the family business.
"They didn't deserve that," said neighbor Kadeer Jackson. "Just two hardworking people trying to chase their dream, and their life gets cut short."
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit responded is conducting the investigation. Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit at 713-274-9100 or call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
