One man was wounded and two people were arrested following a robbery attempt Thursday evening in southwest Fort Worth.
Officers were summoned at about 8:15 p.m. to a shooting call in the 3000 block of Duringer Road, police records show.
A man in his 20s told police that two other people, both males, tried to rob him and he fled from them in a car, but it crashed into a wall, said Capt. Charles Ramirez, police spokesman.
The man tried to run from the scene, but one of the robbers shot him in the upper shoulder with a 9 mm handgun, Ramirez said.
When police arrived they found one of the suspects with the car, claiming he had been in an accident and the other person was a short distance away, Ramirez said.
The pistol and a spent shell casing were recovered and the suspects, both males, ages 16 and 23 were arrested, Ramirez said.
The man who was robbed was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder, Ramirez said.
