HOUSTON – Police are looking for three men who robbed, pistol-whipped and then shot a man overnight.

According to the Houston Police Department, this happened at a Telephone Road residence near Hasbrook.

Police got the call just before midnight late Wednesday. When officers showed up, they found a man had been shot.

Police said a woman was leaving an apartment when three masked and armed men busted in through the open door, pistol whipped the man, and then shot him in the leg.

“The door was open, three males wearing masks, carrying guns came inside the apartment, pistol whipped him, shot him, and then stole some cash and other items before they left,” HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said.

They said the woman was unharmed.

Investigators said the suspects stole cash and other items.

The gunshot victim was taken to the hospital and was conscious and breathing.
