BELLMEAD, Texas (KWTX) - Police released surveillance photos Wednesday of a man who grabbed a woman who was pumping gas Tuesday night at a Bellmead convenience store and then opened fire on her car after she broke free and ran.

Officers responded at around 7 p.m. Tuesday to a report of shots fired at the Bell Mart convenience store at 2917 Bellmead Dr.

“The victim stated that while she was pumping gas the suspect came up to her and placed something to her side and grabbed her,” Bellmead Assistant police Chief Brenda Kinsey said in a press release Wednesday.

“The victim was able to pull away from the man and run,” she said.

The would-be robber then began shooting at the passenger side of the woman’s car, Kinsey said.

The robber, who’s about 6 feet tall and thin, was wearing a black face covering and a black hooded sweatshirt.

He ran from the store with the gun in his hand and got into a white Chevrolet Impala that was parked nearby.

The car did not appear to have license plates, witnesses told officers.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to call the Bellmead Police Department at (254) 799-0251.
