HOUSTON -- Houston police said a witness opened fire on two robbery suspects early Monday, shooting one of them.

It happened outside the Grey Room on Laura Koppe near Sandra.

Witnesses said two men followed a patron into the parking lot. They forced him to the ground and took all his cash.

A bystander saw what was going on and opened fire on the suspects, shooting one of them in the neck. The pair of suspects then jumped into their vehicle and tried to get away.

Police caught up with the vehicle and took the wounded man into custody. The other suspect got away, however.

The suspect was taken to the hospital in unknown condition.
