PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) − The Phoenix police are investigating a series of armed robberies that left one victim and one suspect hurt early Monday morning.

Police say a man and a teen boy attempted to rob a 7-Eleven near Seventh Avenue and Indian School Road just before 2 a.m.

They say the clerk foiled the attempt after shooting the man. With his accomplice wounded, the teen suspect fled the scene, police said.

Paramedics arrived at the scene and transported the wounded suspect to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are still searching for the teen suspect.

Investigators believe the pair also hit two other stores before the shooting.

The first robbery happened shortly after 1 a.m. near 12th Street and Maryland Avenue, where the clerk was pistol-whipped. 

The second robbery happened shortly before 2 a.m. near Seventh Street and Bethany Home Road. No one was hurt. 

No further details were released.

More clerks need to be armed and the robberies would slow to a crawl and eventually stop.

When you publish "early Monday morning . . . just before 2 p.m." and "the their," it's time to hire an editor, fire a reporter, or some combination of both.
