Police were searching Friday for three men after an armed robbery at La Michoacana Meat Market in the 3300 block of Broadway about 9:15 a.m., Galveston police said. 

Shots were fired but no one was injured during a robbery in which suspects took an unknown amount of cash, Galveston Police Department spokesman Capt. Joshua Schirard said. 

The three men jumped into a brown Chevrolet truck and fled east on Broadway, he said. They were all wearing masks, he said. Police soon after found the truck abandoned in the 3400 block of Avenue M 1/2, Schirard said.

Police later found the truck had been reported stolen from Houston earlier in the morning, Schirard said. 

Officers searched the truck, nearby houses and the area but had not found the suspects by Friday evening. 

Police ask anyone with information to call the department at 409-765-3702 or Galveston Crimestoppers at 409-763-8477.
