Robbery at smoke shop prompts SWAT scene in NE Houston

February 11, 2013 5:29:37 PM PST
Houston police were called to a shop in northeast Houston, where they believed a robbery suspect had barricaded himself inside a shop.

SWAT teams were called to a business in the area of Normandy and I-10. According to police, the manager of a smoke shop saw three people trying to rob his store. That's when he reportedly got his own weapon out to try to fend off the would-be burglars.

Police say that manager says he saw two suspects get away, but he fired at a third person who they believed was barricaded inside the smoke shop. But after a couple of hours, they entered the business and discovered it empty.

The suspects who ran from the scene remain at large.
