HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are looking for three young suspects accused of carjacking a man before firing shots into the air on Houston's southside.

The armed robbery happened at a gas station in the 7900 block of Park Place Boulevard at 3:25 a.m. on July 21.

Clear surveillance video released by HPD on Thursday shows the three suspects inside the convenience store at the gas station moments before the alleged crime.

Houston police said the man was walking to his vehicle from the convenience store when he was approached by the three suspects.

One of the suspects pointed a gun at him and demanded his belongings, including his car keys, HPD said.

The suspects then got into the man's vehicle and began to drive away, but not before pointing a gun out of the window and firing several shots.

The surveillance video shows the flash from the gun coming from the back of the car.

Investigators found the man's stolen car at an apartment complex at 6922 South Loop East that same day.

HPD described all three suspects as Hispanic males between 16 and 20 years old. The first suspect wore a black jacket and black pants, the second wore a black pullover and red shorts, and the third wore a gray hoodie and red pants.
