Chilling new video released in N. Houston armored car robbery

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- New video released by the FBI shows how an attempted robber opened fire on a guard during his route at a bank in the north side.

"Two guys that's all I saw it is a scary feeling," said Carlos Lopez, who witnessed the men runaway.

He said its a scary feeling he can't shake off after seeing first-hand 2 dangerous men the FBI is after.

"I'm supper scared cause it happened in front of my house," he said.

Surveillance video shows what happened Friday, Nov. 16 just after 2 o'clock. The gunman was inside a stolen white Jeep, he had a powerful weapon in hand and wore a bullet proof vest. Investigators said he went after the Loomis guard at a bank in the 5200 block of N. Shepard Dr. in the north side of Houston.

"This individual arrived ready for a firefight," said Shauna Dunlap, FBI Houston spokesperson.

The FBI said the gunman fired his weapon but he didn't get a chance to take any cash.

"It was an automatic weapon, it was super fast it was like pow, pow, pow, pow," said Lopez.

The sound from the firing was so powerful it woke up Lopez from a nap and he walked outside to see.

"I just saw a guy running and then I saw a blue car sitting there in the corner he just took off," he said.

The get-away vehicle was parked in front of Lopez house in the 500 block of Hohldale.

Loomis and Crime Stoppers are now offering a reward of up to $15,000.
