HOUSTON -- Police were called to reports of a robbery at a Valero corner store in northwest Houston late Wednesday.
It happened on W. Little York near Langfield, the store’s manager tells KHOU 11 News.
Surveillance video captured two armed men storming the store shortly before 9 p.m. One of the suspects jumped the counter while the other held down an employee. The men then fled on foot into a nearby neighborhood.
A customer who witnessed the crime followed the suspects in his pickup truck. One of the suspects ended up getting shot, but it wasn’t immediately clear who shot him. The wounded suspect was sent to Ben Taub Hospital in stable condition, and the other suspect was taken into custody.
No other injuries were reported, although one of the store workers was kicked in the head.
All the money taken from the store was recovered, according to the manager. The manager said this is the second time his store has been robbed recently.
