LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Two suspected robbers -- one with a possible gunshot wound after a store manager shot at them – are on the run, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

It happened before 4 p.m. inside a consignment store at the intersection of Eastern and Serene avenues.

Wearing sunglasses and clothes pulled up over their heads, police said the suspects went into the store and smashed in jewelry cases with a hammer.

Police said this is the second time the store was robbed. They said the earlier robbery happened just last month.

Police said they do not know if the two robberies are connected, but said this time around the store manager was prepared.

“The manager heard the glass break and told all her employees to run out the back,” Sgt. Steve Junge said.

Junge said the store manager then fired at the suspects.

“She believes she did hit one of the suspects. There are some small blood droplets in the store,” Junge said. “I don't know if that could have come from the glass or maybe one of them was hit.”

Police said the store manager was not hurt, and that the suspects took off in a stolen truck.

“We've recovered that, but it's unoccupied,” Junge said. “We don't have any suspects in custody.”

Police said the truck was found near Boulder Station. They said it’s unknown if the suspects had guns.

The suspects were described as white males or possibly light-skinned Hispanic men.

Police said they will use surveillance video from inside the store to help track down the suspects.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
