Smoke shop employee fights back against two armed robbers, police say

Police are still searching for the two suspects.

SAN ANTONIO — An employee at a northeast-side smoke shop fought back against two armed robbery suspects when they tried to rob the store late Saturday night, police say.

San Antonio Police responded to Vape City on FM 78 at Foster Road, near Rittiman Road, around 10:35 p.m. for reports of an aggravated robbery and possible shooting.

When officers arrived, they were told that two men armed guns were in the vape shop and tried to rob the store of merchandise. One of the employees tried to stop the attempted robbery and chased them outside. 

While everyone was outside there was a struggle and one of the suspects pulls out at gun and fired his weapon. Police believe the suspects fled on foot after the shooting. 

Officers are still trying to determine if he shot towards the employee or up into the air. No bullets hit anybody or the building either.

No injuries were reported. Polie will continue their investigation.

This is a developing story.
