HOUSTON—Houston police are looking for a gang of gun-toting suspects who went on a dangerous robbery spree Wednesday night.

Several men wearing ski masks and gloves entered the Chevron/McDonald’s business on the North Loop at Lockwood around 10 p.m.

The suspects held the employees at gunpoint, taking cash from the registers at the McDonald’s, and also snatched a wallet from a customer.

As they fled the scene, one of the suspects opened fire in the parking lot. No one was injured, but one of the bullets struck a parked vehicle.

“When they were leaving the location, they shot several shots back towards the store and they struck a customer’s car at least two times,” said Lt. Larry Crowson, Houston Police Department. “The suspects fled in possibly a white vehicle. We are currently looking for them, but they are at large at this time.”

Police said the same suspects robbed a Valero gas station on N. Shepherd about 30 minutes earlier, in addition to at least two other businesses that evening. There was surveillance video at the Valero.

HPD located the abandoned getaway vehicle around 1 a.m.
