HOUSTON — It was a terrifying scene in broad daylight in north Houston. Video shows two armed men go on either side of a car. Houston police say they were targeting a woman in that car who had just finished pumping gas.
It happened last Wednesday at around 1:30 p.m. at a gas station near the intersection of the 19400 block of Aldine-Westfield and Rigid Road. It's next to Bush IAH.
Video shows a car pull up and two masked suspects get out. One of them had a shotgun, according to HPD.
The victim says the two gunmen went on either side of her car with weapons pointed and ordered her to get out. She told police that’s when she hit the gas and sped away. One of the suspects fired a shot, hitting her vehicle.
