HOUSTON–The search is on for two men who tried to rob a north Houston store Wednesday afternoon.

It happened at the Coastal gas station on Jensen and Bennington.

Police say that two armed men walked into the place and demanded that the clerk give them money.

They say that a vendor selling phone cards was inside the store too.

He reportedly startled the crooks and one of them shot the vender in the shoulder.
Both thieves fled the store without any money.

The shooting victim was taken to Ben Taub hospital for treatment.
