HOUSTON — The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division is asking for help in locating the two men they believe opened fire on a car that was parked at a gas station.

“It scared everyone,” said the gas station manager, who asked not to be named for her protection.

It all happened in the middle of the day on June 22 at a Shell gas station near the airport.

Surveillance video captured the pair being dropped off at the gas station in a black Chevy Camaro. The suspects were fully masked and one was carrying a long gun as he walked through the busy parking lot.

“In broad daylight — what was it, 1:30 in the afternoon? I was in shock,” the store manager said.

Customers could be seen trying to hide behind cars, as the men walked past them. Police said the suspects approached a woman sitting in her car which was parked at a pump.

“They banged on her window with a shotgun, and I guess every time she saw them and realized what was going on, they tried to open her car door, and she walked away. was untied and they shot her twice,” the manager said.

The men appeared to run after the car as the manager said she was inside the store calling for help.

“I had to find a way to calm everything down because everyone in the store was freaking out. Everyone was like screaming,” she said.

The store manager said gun violence like this cannot be normalized.
