HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Parents of a 9-year-old girl are demanding justice after she was shot to death in the middle of an armed robbery in southeast Houston.

Arlene Alvarez was shot in the head on her way to get pizza with her family for Valentine's Day.

The family planned to stop at the Chase Bank in the 2900 block of Woodridge Drive on their way to make a deposit, according to her father Armando.

As they approached the bank in their Ford F250 truck, Armando said they saw a man, later identified as Tony Earls, getting robbed at gunpoint at the ATM.
