3 suspects shoot and kill 2 men in NW Harris Co. robbery

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- Harris County Sheriff's Deputies say they're searching for three men who murdered two people during an apparent robbery in northwest Harris County.

It happened around 7:15 p.m. Thursday inside in an apartment on West Road Near Jones Road. The victims were shot to death, deputies said.


"At this point, we really don't know if it was a home invasion. There was no apparent forced entry but there was some damage to the door," Sgt. Greg Pinkins said.

Deputies found two men dead from gunshot wounds inside the apartment after responding to a report of a disturbance involving weapons. Witnesses told deputies one of the suspects was wearing a mask with a Mexican flag on it. The second was wearing a black baseball cap and a black bandanna. The third suspect was wearing a dark mask.

Two of them were seen with handguns as the other suspect carried a rifle, investigators said.

The victim's identities weren't immediately released.
