HOUSTON - Two men are behind bars and another is on the run after police say they robbed a Popeye's at gunpoint in northeast Houston.

It happened Wednesday night at the Popeye's fast-food restaurant on Imperial Valley Drive near the Beltway.

According to the Houston Police Department, the employees were locking up the restaurant, when the three armed men burst into the building.

It is unclear if the robbers stole personal items from the employees or store items.

The men all ran away before police could arrive.

Investigators say after a short chase they discovered the men at a nearby apartment complex.

The suspects then attempted to flee again, but police used K-9 and a helicopter to catch two of them.

One of the suspects managed to evade police again.

Investigators are continuing their search for him.
