According to Chad Norvell, of the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, two or three black males brandished a handgun, robbed the store, and left the scene in a silver four door vehicle. The robbers turned left onto 1463.

A black male suspect entered the store, made a small purchase, and walked out. A few minutes later, two black male suspects entered the store, one wearing a blue hoodie and the other wearing a black hoodie.
