HOUSTON – A robber opened fire inside a Family Dollar store Wednesday in northwest Houston, police said.
It happened in the 8600 block of West Montgomery Road.
The assistant manager said a robber pulled a gun, and demanded everyone get on the floor. When a clerk had trouble opening the register he said the robber fired at the ceiling.
“At first, I couldn’t believe it, I thought it was like a joke or something, and then I saw the gun in his hand,” said Diego Cruz, the store’s assistant manager.
The robber grabbed the cash from the register and fled.
No injuries were reported.
