A man at a gas station was ripped off of about a million dollars worth of jewels. Police say three guys approached the man at a Chevron station on Bissonnet at Kirby just before 6pm, pulled a gun on him and took the jewels he was carrying. The thieves punctured a tire on the victim's vehicle so he couldn't follow them.

They jumped in a car where a woman was waiting and took off.

Police are looking for the group. They were driving a silver Mitshubishi.

The victim, who did not want to be identified, says he was terrified during the robbery and fears for his safety.

A clerk inside the gas station says she didn't see anything. There are surveillance cameras inside the building, but not outside.
