PHOENIX -- Authorities are searching for at least two suspects in an armed robbery and a shooting at a Phoenix business Saturday night.

Officer Chris Hegstrom with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said two armed men went into a cellphone store near 39th and Southern avenues and got into a fight with a female employee.

Hegstrom said one man shot the employee in the shoulder. She was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.

The men fled the scene and possibly had a getaway driver, Hegstrom said.

It was not immediately known what was taken from the store.

The suspects are described as Hispanic men in hoodies and blue jeans.
