A robbery left HPD officers in pursuit last night, and not just once

Police taped off a portion of a parking lot behind Sharpstown Mall on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2008, in Houston. Two men were expected to survive after having been shot Thursday in a drug-related shootout at an apartment complex across the street from a mall, police said. The shooting was initially reported as an attempted carjacking in the mall's parking lot. But investigators later determined the two unidentified men were injured during a gun battle involving up to five people inside an apartment at a complex across the street from Sharpstown Mall in southwest Houston, said Houston Police Capt. Bruce Williams. (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Sharon Steinmann )

It was a busy night for the Houston Police Department.

Officers were involved in two separate car chasesΒ late Wednesday, ultimately resulting in arrests of five robbery suspects.

A group of men committed an armed robbery against a person near Gessner and Beechnut in the early morning hours of Thursday.

Someone flagged down a nearby officer, but the suspects jumped into a silver Chevy pickup truck and fled.

Police chased the truck to north Houston near Lee and Semmes, where the suspects exited the vehicle and fled on foot.

One of the suspects was caught running away, but the others were still at-large.

Later, police noticed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed through the area with passengers who matched their suspects’ profiles.

A second pursuit began, with police tailing the new suspect vehicle.

The car turned down a road near Venus and Anchor streets, which, unfortunately for the robbers, turned out to be a dead end, trapping the suspects.

Police were able to arrest all four remaining suspects.

An investigation into the matter is ongoing.
