HOUSTON --An innocent customer caught in the middle of a gas station robbery in northwest Harris County. Around 11:30pm Thursday, two men in masks stormed into the store on West Little York near Huffmeister waving guns. A customer got in their way, and when he did not hand over his wallet, the crooks shot him in the back.
As the gunmen were leaving, the store clerk grabbed his gun and opened fire. A gunfight ensued until the crooks got away on foot.
The wounded customer was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital in serious condition.
