HOUSTON – An armored truck guard was robbed and shot Thursday afternoon outside a Wells Fargo Bank in southeast Houston.

The incident happened in the 9900 block of Almeda Genoa Road near Minnesota Street around 1:30 p.m.

Two masked gunmen approached the armored truck guard and began attacking him then firing at him. The victim’s partner returned fire and the suspects fled.

There may be a third suspect, according to witnesses. They fled in a stolen pickup truck that was dumped down the road.

Authorities are looking at the bank’s surveillance cameras and nearby cameras for more information about the suspects.
