The incident occurred between 1 and 3 a.m. near the 900 block of West Fifth Street, which is near Vance Street, according to a case report issued on Monday. The report indicated a robber with a semi-automatic handgun held up the  men and the firearm was discharged at least one time.

Two of the men, both 26-years-old, did not report injuries, but the third, a 32-year-old, reported minor injuries. It is unclear if he was injured by the firearm.
