HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Deputies are looking for two men who robbed a CVS store in northwest Harris County. One of the robbers has a gunshot wound.

Deputies say around 10:00pm last night, the two men, dressed in hoodies to conceal their identities, ran into the CVS on Ella at FM 1960. One of the men took the manager to the back of the store to steal money.

The second robber, who was armed with a gun, then somehow managed to shoot himself. His accomplice ran up, carried him out of the store and both got away with an unknown amount of cash.

Employees were shaken up, but none of them were hurt.

Deputies say they have good evidence, including clear surveillance video, which they believe will help them track down the wounded robber and his friend.
