DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Two men are recovering after shooting each other in a robbery gone wrong, according to Dothan police.

Officers responded to “a robbery/shooting call” on Greentree Ave Monday where they found that the suspect tried to pull a gun on his target only for the victim to fight back.

The would-be robber shot the victim in the leg, but he didn’t escape unscathed as the victim pulled out his own gun and shot the suspect twice, once in the shoulder and once in the leg.

Both men were treated for their wounds, which have been determined to be nonlife-threatening. While the suspect has not been identified, arrests are expected in this case.
