MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Police are searching for multiple robbery suspects who robbed several people outside a bus stop and shot a witness.

According to Memphis Police Department, two people were sitting outside a bus stop at the corner of Lamar Avenue and Bellevue Boulevard when a dark gray car pulled up.

“This guy walks up, pulls a gun and says give me your money," one of the victims said.

Two men jumped out of the car and robbed the victims.

A victim said they took just seven dollars from him. He said he was sitting at the bus stop with a woman he didn't know when a car pulled up and two men got out. One pointed a gun at him.

Moments later, a third victim was walking down Bellevue and happened to witness the shooting.

“They asked him, do he want some of this and told him to come here. He turned around and started running," the victim said.

That's when shots were fired at the man. He was hit in the shoulder.

The two men jumped in the car with a female driver and they sped off.

Police said one of the suspects may be just 15 years old.

“No child has no business 15 years old, first of all with a gun, and then out at 1:30 in the morning," bus rider Timothy Mosely said.

The victim said he will not be returning to the stop.

“I have to find me another way home," he said.

The shooting victim was taken to the hospital in non-critical condition but was later downgraded to critical.
