Rains said that the intended victim pulled his gun and fired at the two men, shooting one in the hand. The robbers fled toward Cottage Street, returning fire as they retreated, she said. The intended victim was not hit.

About an hour later, a man showed up at the University of South Alabama Medical center for treatment of a gunshot to the right hand, Rains said.
