EAST PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) -- An attempted robbery gone bad has led to two people being shot in East Price Hill.

The owner of D and R Recycling Cincinnati Moving, located in the 400 block of Elberon Ave., says a suspect walked into the business and demanded everyone to empty their pockets.

"I thought he was joking," said Raymond Palma, owner. "There were about 15 guys in there."

Palma said he tried to subdue the suspect, and two shots were fired.

One bullet grazed the owner's brother. The other shot hit the suspect.

The suspect was taken to the hospital in an ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. Palma's brother is expected to be OK.
