HOUSTON - "They’re just wielding guns or attacking hard working people trying to get to work," said a nearby resident who asked us not to show her face.
The first thing you see on the surveillance video is a woman dancing on the hood of a car. She runs off when a car pulls up. The next thing you know this guy is ducking behind gas pumps to dodge bullets.
"We’d just go to the convenience store to get something and didn’t think twice about it," she said.
Now, the woman is leery of using the store and she’s not alone.
"People brandishing weapons and jacking people," she said. "Now I never go there after dark."
