AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Richmond County deputies are looking for two men they believe were involved in the armed robbery and shooting of another man. 

Deputies were called to the 3000 block of Hummingbird Lane at about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The 37-year-old victim told deputies two men approached him as he was getting out of his vehicle at his house on Hummingbird Lane, according to the sheriff's office. He had just returned from Walmart.

The two men were armed with handguns and told the victim to "give it up," according to the sheriff's office. The victim struggled with one of the men and was shot in the left wrist.

Both bones in the victim's lower arm were shattered, but deputies said he received treatment at a local hospital and is in stable condition.

Deputies say the two men in the surveillance photo are "persons of interest" in the case.

Anyone with information about the men in the photos or the car in the photos can contact the sheriff's office at 706-821-1080 and ask to speak with any violent crimes investigator. Callers can remain anonymous.
