Two gas station clerks robbed, 1 shot in northeast Harris County

HARRIS COUNTY, TexasA gunman is on the run after two gas station clerks were robbed and one was shot in northeast Harris County.

Deputies were called around midnight to a Valero in the 14000 block of Homestead Road for reports of a shooting.

Witness told investigators that two men jumped out of a white SUV and tried to rob the two clerks as they were closing the store. A witness said it appeared the clerks refused to give the men money when one of them started shooting, even as the clerks drove away.

Investigators said the two clerks drove a black car with a bullet hole in the back window to a Shell gas station at 1950 North Sam Houston Pkwy, which is about five minutes from the scene of the shooting.

One of the men had a gunshot wound in the thigh, deputies said.

The other clerk was not injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
