A Houston man possibly connected to the Subway killing of Javier Flores was arrested last week for an armed robbery at a nearby sandwich shop later that day.

Jeffrey Cordero Archangel, 25, was jailed Wednesday after police said he and another man robbed a Subway on San Jacinto, less than two hours after 18-year-old  Flores was shot in a botched robbery in February.

Just before 9 p.m on Feb. 22,  two gun-toting men burst into a Subway on Broadway near the Gulf Freeway. Flores and his mother were the only workers in the store at the time, prepping for closing just an hour later.

The teen’s mother was toward the front of the store cleaning up when one of the assailants pointed a gun at her face. 

Flores dashed from behind the counter to intervene and save his mother. 

The teen was shot in the process and was rushed to the hospital where he later died. 

Two hours later, robbers hit up a Subway on San Jacinto about seven miles away. 

Although the suspects got away with cash and food, they were caught on surveillance video. Police released the footage two days later, saying it showed the shooter from the earlier heist.  

After the hold-up, a witness identified Archangel as one of the robbers, according to court documents. 

Archangel was arrested Wednesday for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. He bonded out Tuesday on $30,000 bail. 

His appointed defense attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
