HOUSTON - Police are searching for two gunmen after an attempted carjacking in northwest Harris County.

A family of three were returning to their home on Roydencrest Dr. and Dawn Lily Dr. around 11:15 p.m. Saturday after purchasing two new cars.

The wife and child went into the house.

The husband was still outside when two gunmen appeared demanding both cars.

Both gunmen then ran off on foot.

The husband was then taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in serious but stable condition.

His wife and child were not hurt.
