3 shot during attempted robbery in Lockland

LOCKLAND, OH (FOX19) -

Lockland Police say that three would be robbers, one adult and two juveniles, were shot after they demanded money from another man at gunpoint.

Police say, according to the attempted robbery victim, he was alone and was getting out of his car in an alley when three males came to him and told him to give them everything at gunpoint. The robbery victim, who was on his way into work, did comply with the demands and gave the robbers his wallet. The would be robbers did not know, however, that the man who they were trying to rob was also carrying a gun with a concealed carry permit. 

All three attempted robbers were shot with a .40 caliber glock at the 109 North Wayne in Lockland. One of the juveniles was shot in the face, one in the right shoulder, and the adult was hit in the lower left leg. The suspects then fled the scene on foot in different directions, but were later caught a short distance away by Lockland police.

Police say at this point it is unclear who shot the three men, but they did say in a press conference on Sunday that "we believe that this is an instance of a subject who was almost about to be the victim of a robbery, he's a licensed CCW holder, and had a weapon himself." 

The three people who were shot were transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries in ambulances. They are being held at the hospital. Police say they are looking into charging them with aggravated robbery and possibly felonious assault.

Police say that there are independent witnesses who are cooperating with them and have given statements.

FOX19 will continue to update the story as more details become available.
