The Waxahachie Police Department is investigating a second armed robbery on Wyatt Street.
Officers responded to a “shots fired” call at 2:43 a.m. Friday in the 1200 block of Wyatt.
At the scene, officers made contact with the occupants of a house who said they had just been robbed at gunpoint.
“They reported that two suspects kicked open the front door and ordered everyone to the ground,” detective Sgt. Todd Woodruff said. “The suspects then entered and took valuables from the residents.”
Descriptions have been released of the two suspects.
The first is described as a black male in his late teens to early 20s, who was wearing a camouflage, hooded jacket. The suspect was wielding a sawed-off shotgun, police said.
The second suspect is described as a black male, about 20 years old and wearing a blue, hooded jacket. Police said the second suspect was described as having lighter skin and taller than the first suspect. The second suspect had a pistol, police said.
“The residents reported hearing gunshots outside as the pair departed the area,” Woodruff said, asking that anyone with information contact him at the police department at 972-937-9940.
Police are looking into whether Friday morning’s offense is related to an armed robbery that occurred at about 2:25 a.m. Thursday in the 500 block of Wyatt St.
The owner of a grocery store told police he was dropping off items at his business when he was confronted by a male suspect with a sawed-off or short-barrelled shotgun.
The suspect demanded the owner’s wallet, with the owner complying with the request, Woodruff said, noting the suspect fled on foot north on Wyatt Street, with the owner giving chase until he lost sight of him in the area around Dunlap Street.
The suspect in Thursday’s robbery was described as a black male wearing braces, in his 20s and wearing a camouflage jacket.
Anyone with information on the first robbery is asked to contact detective Ron Clayton at 972-937-9940.
