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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
