LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock police are searching for gunmen in robbery that left six people injured.

Residents say seven people were walking in the 2200 block of 17th Street around 10:20 p.m. Sunday when they were approached by two men.

"They were trying to rob them of their phones and their wallets, and they said 'No'. So, they followed them back to their house, over here, and threatened them once more," said Luke Ford. "They got one phone out of them, I believe. And as they were walking, over next to that tree, about 15 to 20 yards down, they fired off a round at 'em."

Police say six of the seven victims were peppered with bird shot and suffered minor injuries. All refused treatment at the scene.

The suspects were described as a Hispanic male, 20-30 years old wearing a white shirt and red shorts, and a black male, 20-30 years old wearing dark or black colored clothing.
