Two robbery suspects may have gunshot wounds

Greenville police were searching tonight for two men who may have been shot as they attempted to rob the Concrete Jungle on Laurens Road this afternoon, spokesman Cpl. Jason Rampey said.

The store’s operator told investigators that he fired multiple times when the two walked in and tried to rob the store at 1810 Laurens Road at about 4 p.m., Rampey said.

Police haven’t said how many shots were fired. “He shot more than once,” Rampey said. The name of the store operator hasn’t been released.

Police notified all area hospitals that one or two men may be seeking treatment for a gunshot wound, Rampey said. “When we have something like this, we notify all the area hospitals,” he said. “If there’s a gunshot wound staggering in, they notify us.”

The two men “fled on foot away” from Laurens Road toward Blakely Road, Rampey said.

One man was described as a black male in his 30s and about 6 feet, 1 inch, weighing about 190 pounds and wearing a white T-shirt, blue shorts and a day-old beard, Rampey said.

The second man was described as a black male in his 20s, about 5 feet, 10 inches, weighing about 180 pounds, and wearing a white T-shirt, black shorts, a black hat and white shoes.
