Preliminary indications are that the 21-year-old victim was at a location on Candler Road when an unknown number of men forced their way into the victim's car and forced him to drive to his home on Boulderwoods Drive, Parrish said. Once at that location, the suspects demanded money.

The victim was able to arm himself and shot one of the suspects, Parrish said. One of the suspects returned fire, striking the victim. Both suspects fled, but one of the men collapsed in a neighbor's yard. The other suspect got away.

Police are not identifying either of the wounded men.
