HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A woman was critically injured overnight during an ATM robbery in northwest Harris County, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

On Saturday, at approximately 11:06 PM, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the 12100 block of Veterans Memorial Dr. in reference to a shooting.

On arrival, deputies found a female victim sitting in a car near a drive through ATM machine. The female sustained multiple gunshot wounds in the shooting and was transported to a hospital in critical condition.

An initial investigation revealed the female victim and her husband were depositing money at the ATM when a white four-door car blocked them in. A Hispanic male exited the passenger’s seat of the car, pointed a gun at the woman and her husband, and demanded they withdraw money from the ATM.

The suspect then fled the parking lot in the white car.
