HOUSTON – Police are asking for the public’s help in finding three suspects who stole an SUV, then an ATM from Right Choice CU and shot at an off-duty police officer who was chasing them.

The three suspects arrived to the credit union around 3:15 a.m. on Aug. 3 and attempted to steal the credit union’s ATM, but couldn’t take it with them, according to police. A few hours later, the suspects returned to get the ATM by attaching a chain to the stolen SUV and dragging it away from the scene.

At about 5:30 a.m., an off-duty police officer spotted the suspects dragging the ATM down the street and began to follow them. The suspects then began firing shots at the officer’s car and managed to escape the scene.
