Police say they were following a group of robbers for an entire day before a deadly shootout.

Two people were killed Thursday night after several officers got into a gunfight with a group of attempted robbers in north Houston, police said. One of the suspects was even wearing an ankle monitor.

The shooting happened at a strip center in the 11300 block of the North Freeway, where police say five suspects were robbing the Affordable Furniture store. When they walked out, five officers were waiting on them. They exchanged fire.
