Authorities have responded to an attempted armored car robbery in northwest Harris County.
It happened around 9:40 a.m. Tuesday in the Chase Bank parking lot at 4700 block of Louetta near Kuykendahl.
Officials said an armored car guard was approached by one of two armed suspects as he was walking into the bank.
Deputies with the Harris County Sheriff's Office said the suspects were armed with a shotgun.
The guard fired back several times the suspects, who deputies said were wearing ski masks. No one was injured.
One witness spoke to Local 2 about what he saw.
"I was in the shop working on a car, and heard about four or five gunshots," one witness told Local 2. "I ran outside and saw a guy running from the bank over to a black Lexus and got in the car. He was holding a black shot gun had a ski mask on. He got in the car and left."
The suspects drove off before police arrived at the scene.
Deputies said several cars in the parking lot were hit with gunshots. One car suffered a flat tire.
Investigators are trying to see if any security cameras captured the incident on video.
