Police are searching for three suspects wanted for an armed robbery that took place Wednesday at a Subway near the UH campus.
According to KPRC, at least one shot was fired around 4:30 p.m. at the shopping center along Scott near Alabama, near the stadium construction.
An employee, who was off duty at the time, told KPRC the men threatened him with a gun and demanded he open the register.
One of the robbers fired a shot, but no injuries were reported.
The suspects escaped with an unknown amount of cash and an employee’s wallet.
Police said they recovered the getaway vehicle, a light blue van, about a half mile away, but the workers did not have a detailed description of the suspects, according to the Houston Chronicle.
