Houston police say three suspects wore 'Scream' masks to a store robbery right before leading officers in a chase during rush hour.

According to investigators, the suspects held up workers at a GameStop store at 2612 S. Shepherd around 5 p.m.

After the suspects fled, officers managed to find them on the 610 North Loop. Police pursued the suspects until their Camaro suddenly stopped.

The three men surrendered to police after a brief standoff on the North Loop at McCarty.

Our cameras were there as officers pulled out bags of evidence from their car, including the Ghostface masks made popular in Wes Craven's 'Scream' horror franchise.

We spoke with someone who works next to the store that was robbed, and watched the suspects' high speed getaway.

"I saw the white Camaro speed out, do a U-turn in traffic, almost hit a few cars, and then speed off towards I-10," the woman said. "And then, like five minutes later, a few cop cars are chasing after him."

We do not know who the three suspects are, but are working to learn more about them and the charges they face.
