It happened around 1:15 a.m. on FM 2978 and Carraway.
Deputies said two men arrived at portable storage building behind the food trailer, and demanded money and cell phones from the owner and his common-law wife. That’s when they shot the 37-year-old, investigators said.
Miguel Angel Flores-Delarosa died at the scene.
The men ran off, but it wasn’t clear which direction they headed. There was no description of the suspects.
