Officials said officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Industrial next GYM X about a disturbance with a gun Saturday evening.

Dispatchers were told by the caller that a suspect was following him and began to shoot at him.

An investigation found the victim was driving near Industrial and Waco Drive when the incident happened. After the victim was shot at, he fled in his car and stopped near Valley Mills and Sanger to wait for police.

11:00 p.m.

The A&M Smokes Shop at 2406 W. Waco Drive was robbed by a male suspect.

The owner told officers that he saw the man approaching the business from the east side of the building armed with a hand gun.

He ran inside the business and warned his customers about the pending robbery and then ran out the back door. Most of the customers left the scene. However, one woman was unfazed by the incident and continued to finish her eight-liner game.

After waving the gun at customers, he immediately went behind the counter to open the cash register but was unsuccessful.

No money or merchandise was taken from the scene.

He was described to be in his late 20s to early 30s, 5’10”-6’02”, 200 lbs, muscular build, wearing black and white covering his face, with a black do-rag underneath, white long-sleeve shirt, baggy faded blue jeans, black ankle high boots, and wearing gloves.
