HOUSTON – Houston police officers are looking for three suspects connected to two separate robberies at a food store on West Gulf Bank Road.

Around 1 p.m. on Aug. 24, two men came into the AM Seafood store and offered to pay a lower price for some drinks. The clerk refused their request, and police say the men stole the drinks and walked out of the store.

The clerk followed the men to get the license plate of their vehicle and one of the men shot at the clerk twice and hit the front glass of the store, according to police.

While this incident was happening, an unrelated man took the money from the tip jar at the counter.

All the suspects were able to get away. 

Police are asking anyone with information to contact Houston Crime Stoppers by calling 713-222-8477.
