Two robbery suspects exchanged gunfire with two police officers outside a southeast Houston cellphone store Monday.

Police said the shooting happened at the Verizon Wireless store on the Gulf Freeway between Edgebrook and Almeda Genoa at 2:45 p.m.

Officials said two armed men tried to rob the store when two off-duty officers happened to be inside. The officers and suspects exchanged gunfire. No one was hit.

One of the suspects escaped in a getaway car. The other took off on foot and carjacked a female motorist, police said. They remain on the loose.
