HOUSTON – Police were searching for two suspects Monday who shot a 67-year-old man in the chest Sunday morning, then possibly assaulted another man minutes later in north Houston.
Police said two men in a red pickup truck pulled up to the first victim as he was about to walk in his front gate on Brooks at Gano around 6:45 a.m., pointed a gun and demanded money.
After the suspects took the man’s wallet, which contained about $400 cash, the man was shot once in the chest.
The suspects then fled the scene.
Police believe the suspects may also be responsible for knocking a man unconscious less than an hour after the first robbery. The suspects ditched their vehicle, which police located around 8 a.m.
The suspects were still at large Monday.
