HOUSTON - Armed crooks robbed a northwest Harris County gas station Friday night and managed to escape with money and candy.

According to reports, the three masked suspects walked into the Valero convenience store on Fairbanks North Houston Road around 11.

Investigators said they pointed a gun at customers and the clerk, demanding cash from the register.

Police said they took an unknown amount of money and candy before shooting several rounds into the ceiling and outside in the parking lot.

No one was injured, police said.

Investigators called a K-9 unit to the scene, which tried to track the crooks, but it lost track of their scent, police said.

As of Saturday morning, no arrests had been made.
