Metro police on Thursday afternoon said they are looking for two men in connection with a robbery and shooting Saturday near Valley View Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road.
Police said at about 9:55 p.m., the victim was approached by two men, who may be white or Hispanic, who had been traveling in a light blue sedan.
The men exited the vehicle, pointed a gun at the victim and demanded property. The victim complied, handing over his or her wallet, but one of the men shot that victim in the face.
