The Fort Worth Police Department and TCU Police Department are searching for two men suspected of robbing two students and shooting one of them multiple times with a paintball gun overnight Sunday.

At 2:00 a.m., the students were walking in the 3100 block of South University Drive when they were approached by two black males in a dark-colored sedan, according to an email sent by Interim Chief of Police Robert R. Rangel to the university Sunday night.

The suspects displayed a paintball rifle and demanded personal property from both students, according to police. After the students complied, the suspects fired multiple shots with the paint gun as they fled toward West Berry Street.

The TCU Police Department will be conducting extra patrols on campus and in the surrounding areas in response to the crime, Rangel said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact TCU Police at 817-257-7777 or Fort Worth Police Department at 817-392-4222.
