Houston police say the men began their crime spree at a Valero gas station on West 16th street and North Shephered around 9:30pm last night.
An hour later, police believe the same two men stormed a Raising Cane's restaurant on Ella and the North Loop. Both customers and employees were inside when shots broke out.
"One of the suspects fired a round not in the direction of anybody but apparently just to intimidate the people inside the store to cooperate," HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said.
The crime spree ended at 1:00am after the same two men robbed a Walgreen's in the 900 blcok of Studemont. Authorities say the men were able to get away with an unknown amount of cash from the store. Surveillance video captured them leaving in a white or silver Hyundai.
Anyone who knows anything about the crimes is urged to call Houston Police or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
