Cracker Barrel faces accusations of racism Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc.

A man suspected of the fatal shooting of a Cracker Barrel restaurant manager Saturday near Houston was killed by police on Monday, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the officer-involved shooting occurred near a high school in Humble, Texas, after a Dodge Charger that matched the description of the vehicle used in the incident was located.

Authorities said the 28-year-old male suspect, who has not been identified, had two felony arrest warrants and was aiming a weapon at officers when he was killed.

Two deputies were involved in the shooting and the suspect was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead. No officers were injured in the shooting.

Robin Baucom, 59, the manager of Cracker Barrel, was the lone victim of the gunmen.

The suspect's vehicle was in front of the restaurant before business hours and the suspect attempted to take an employee’s purse when they were trying to enter the building. Baucom tried to open the door so the employee could enter. The suspect followed the employee into the restaurant and when Baucom tried to push the suspect away she was shot in the chest and killed.

Baucom had reportedly worked at Cracker Barrel for 34 years.
