Police in Florida are searching for two suspects after a manager at a Walmart Supercenter was shot during an attempted robbery.

ABC Action News reported that the incident took place on Tuesday night around 9:39 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter on 6225 East State Road 64.

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office revealed that two suspects entered the location. The first suspect demanded money while the second suspect acted as a lookout.

However, the robbery didn’t go as planned when the store manager refused to give up any money to the armed suspect twice. The first suspect then proceeded to run out of the Walmart and was followed by his accomplice.

The manager followed the first suspect, who fell as he attempted to flee the store. He then opened fire when the manager got within a few feet of him, shooting the victim in the leg.

“The manager ended up going to the customer service area, where he was speaking with the suspect and refused to give him money,” Lt. Sean Felton told the Bradenton Herald.

“Ultimately, as he was chasing the suspect out of the store, the suspect turned and shot him.

The first suspect was described as a Black male wearing a white mask, white shirt, white shorts, an orange hat, and black shoes.

The second suspect was a Black male wearing a headcover with a white hat on top with the word “gators” written across it, a black long sleeve sweater, blue jeans, and black shoes.

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office revealed the store manager is in stable condition. According to deputies, no one else was injured during the attempted robbery.
