At about 6:50 a.m. this morning, two men were held at gunpoint as they walked down the 300 block of West Eighth between Madison and Bishop.

According to the police report, one of the victims was on his way to work when a suspect got out of a Ford sedan that was parked in the middle of the street and held a pistol to the victim’s head, demanding money. At the same time, a second suspect held another nearby witness at gunpoint while a third suspect kept watch.

The robbers made off with wallets, credit cards, car keys and a cell phone. One suspect yelled, “Run!” and all three got back into the car — but not before firing one shot into the air.
