Several people are on the run after an attempted robbery ends in a shooting.

Police say a security guard shot a robbery suspect in east Houston.

The shooting happened after midnight at an apartment complex on Dawnwood Drive at Centerwood Drive.

Officers say as many as four men pulled guns, possibly to rob the security guard.

That is when the security guard pulled his own gun and shot one of the men in the arm. He held the robbery suspect at gunpoint until police could arrive and arrest him.

The other suspects are on the run.
