Officers say a man with a handgun along with two other men approached a group of men in the 1100 block of S. 5th Avenue.

The suspects allegedly demanded the group of men give up their money and belongings. When one of the victims resisted the man with the gun, there was a struggle and a shot was fired into the air, police say. The man allegedly struck the victim one the side of the head and all three men ran from the area.

The victim had non-life threatening injuries and was treated by medics on scene.

The three suspects were unable to take anything from the group of men.

The suspects are all described as Hispanic males.

The second suspect was approximately 5'7'', slender build, and approximately 18 to 22 years of age. He was wearing a red shirt, red shorts, and a red hat.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?
