Crews of gunmen have been running wild in various communities in Texas border cities, ambushing homes demanding drugs or robbing individuals at gunpoint.

In just one night, a string of armed hooded men carrying rifles raided at least three residences, attacking the victims inside while demanding drugs or cash. The day after, gunmen shot a burglary victim and engaged in a high-speed chase with authorities and managed to evade capture.

Breitbart Texas reported that the chaos started late on Sunday night and continued into early Monday morning where the gunmen hit three different homes and unconfirmed reports point to a possible fourth being robbed, all of which occurred in just a matter of hours.

In the first incident, three gunmen attacked a house in a rural community near the Texas border city of Edinburgh.

The men forced the family inside of the house to get on the floor while they ransacked the home for drugs. The gunmen robbed various electronic items.

Less than 30 minutes later, authorities responded to another rural residence near the Texas border city of Mission, where gunmen rushed into the house and hit the homeowner in the head with one of the firearms. The thugs demanded drugs as they kicked him multiple times in front of his family. The criminals also took various electronic items from the house.

Two hours later, law enforcement officials were dispatched to a third home invasion where a crew of five gunmen stormed a house. The owner told police that he woke up to seeing the gunmen, while no one was hurt in that attack, the men took a television on their way out.

The most recent incident occurred on Tuesday night when a string of gunmen riding in a dark colored SUV raided, robbed and shot a 36-year-old man as he was leaving a convenience store.

The victim was able to give police a description of the vehicle and the suspects. Sheriff’s deputies recognized a vehicle resembling the description shortly after, and with the assistance of Texas State Troopers, tried to pull it over. The criminals managed to avoid capture by driving at high speeds through rural communities. The shooting victim is currently in stable condition at a nearby hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
