Memphis man shot during attempted robbery

A day of shopping may have ended in near-death for one man Friday night. Police say he was shot during an attempted robbery. Two suspects remain on the run.

Police say two robbers confronted two men standing in a driveway at the corner of Given and Vaughn.

At some point one or both suspects fired at least six shots. One of the two victims was hit.

A witness told police the victims bought some things Friday afternoon. Police don't know if the gunman actually followed the victims from the store.

But their shots were enough to shake-up the neighborhood.

"We were painting our kitchen--all of the sudden heard gun shots--couple of seconds later, more gun shots--and the next thing I know is I'm laying on the floor," says William Barnes.

There's only a vague description of the two suspects. They were seen speeding away from the scene in a dark-colored pick-up truck.
