A would-be robbery victim in Atlanta pulled a gun and shot three of the three suspects Friday afternoon near a Kroger grocery store, according to authorities.

Fox 5 Atlanta reports that the would-be victim of an alleged robbery was followed to a parking lot by three suspects after exiting the store. Investigators believe the suspects “planned to rob or carjack the victim,” but the victim turned the tables by pulling a gun and opening fire.

The suspects opened fire as well, but the would-be victim was not hit. All three suspects were struck by gunfire.

Police were alerted to the incident when one of the wounded suspects entered the Kroger to seek help.

The names of the alleged robbery suspects were not immediately released.
