HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are searching for two men they say robbed a man, led officers on a chase and then shot at them in southwest Houston.

At about 7 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to a robbery call at the 6200 block of Richmond. Police said a man was leaving work when two men robbed him.


An off-duty sergeant was at the scene and someone alerted him of the robbery. When the sergeant spotted an unmarked unit in the area, he informed them of the situation.
