Two men emerged from Dreams Gentlemen's Club about 4:30 in the morning April 8.
They were approached by two men, one with a gun.
The armed man "pointed [the gun] at the two men and ordered them to raise their hands," Houston police say. "The second man told his friend to run and then fled. The victim, instead of running, raised his hands in the air and the suspect shot him."
You shot the guy who followed your directions? Nice work. The unidentified victim, 30, was shot in the wrist and abdomen but has recovered.
The two putative robbers then fled in a "white 2001 to 2005 Chevrolet Impala with tinted windows and swagger rims," HPD says.
The police released a composite sketch of one of the suspects. He's described as "a black male in his 20s, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing about 120 to 130 pounds with braided hair."
The other suspect, the one with the gun, was described as "a black male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 185 to 190 pounds, wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap and a blue bandana over his face."
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the IFR Division at 713-247-8400 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
