HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Two men were arrested last night after allegedly partaking in a robbing spree at an apartment complex in northwest Houston.

According to authorities, a male was found shot and robbed in the parking lot of the Vista Villa Apartments.

A nearby car was also found struck by a bullet which ruptured the gas tank causing a fuel spill, according to Houston Police.

Four other victims from the apartment complex also reported robberies to authorities.
