Customers waiting for a video game release at a GameStop were targeted by a group of armed robbers

HOUSTON -- Armed robbers targeted a group of gamers who were waiting for a new video game release at a GameStop in northwest Harris County.

Around 9:30 p.m. Monday night, three men wearing hoodies and masks walked into the GameStop off FM 1960 at Veterans Memorial and held the employees and customers at gunpoint.

The suspects used a Taser on one customer before robbing everyone of their money and cell phones. The crooks also took cash from the store's register.

The clerk managed to place a tracking device in the bag with the cash, but deputies found the device a short time later on Wonderlich and FM 1960 where the suspects had thrown the it out of the window.

The customer who was Tased was not taken to the hospital. No one else got hurt.

Deputies are still searching for the three armed robbers.
