HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - Three men have been charged with capital murder in the shooting death of a man during a robbery.

Amir Yarbrough, Quincy Thomas and Tyre Hartley have been charged with capital murder.

Deputies say that the three men allegedly met with 29-year-old Marquiet Davis in the parking lot of a Carl's Jr. restaurant on Wallisville Rd. in east Harris County.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says that Davis was alone in a car when Yarbrough and Thomas entered the vehicle.
