Two men robbed at gunpoint near Stonestown Galleria

Three shotgun-wielding suspects robbed a couple of men at gunpoint Tuesday night on 19th Avenue near the Stonestown Galleria, police said.

Just after 8 p.m., two men in their mid-20s were walking near the intersection of 19th and Eucalyptus avenues when the three suspects — all males between 18 and 24 — approached them armed with shotguns.

One of the suspects pointed a shotgun at the two victims and ordered them to lie on the ground. The suspects then snatched the two victims’ backpacks and fled from the scene on foot.

No arrests have been made. Police are investigating.
