The Dumbest Attempted Robbery in Houston (So Far This Year)
Robbers elbow each other and fire shots.
We know, it's funny until someone loses an eye, or a limb, or his life. But this week, police released a video of a group of thugs who were maybe scared by their own shadows, or just didn't like lingerie mannequins.
As it is, cops are looking for a trio that went into the shop on North Freeway with a gun and a rifle and fired off a shot for no apparent reason.
The suspects entered the Katz Boutique at the above address to rob the business. During the robbery, the suspect with the revolver apparently bumped into the suspect with the rifle, causing the rifle to discharge. At that time, both males fired their weapons toward store employees as they ran out the door.
No one was injured in the incident.
Maybe these guys know something about lingerie shops doing killer business this time of year that we don't.
