HOUSTON - It has been almost two weeks since a Brinks armored security guard was shot in broad daylight by masked men near the Galleria. Brinks and the FBI are stepping things up offering $100,000 for any info leading to their arrests.

"We will insure justice is served in this case and we must all work together to insure the safety of our community," said Perrye Turner, FBI Special Agent In Charge.

"To those responsible, the weight of the Houston law enforcement is now upon you," Turner said.

Alvin Kinney, 60, and his co-worker were making a delivery at Capitol One Bank and were parked in front of the plaza along Westheimer near Chimney Rock.

As Kinney was on his way back to the Brinks truck, that's when at least three men wearing body armor and face-shield masks approached him and opened fire.

"While also under fire, the second Brinks guard returned fire as the assailants backed up a stolen white F-250 truck and quickly loaded several bags of cash," said Turner.

Police found the truck a few blocks away, but no sign of the men.
