COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

While police continue to look for five suspects in an armed robbery of the Winn-Dixie off Milgen Road in Columbus, some people are asking what they would do if they encountered a crime like this.

A mother and daughter did not want to go on camera, but reports say they pulled into the Winn-Dixie parking lot Wednesday night to see the suspects run to a car and pull out.

Thinking the men were acting suspiciously and might have committed a crime inside the store, the witness behind the driver's wheel decided to pursue down Milgen Road and try to get a license plate number for police. According to the police report, the suspects' car pulled off the roadway near Stratford Apartments on Milgen Road.  Then, one person got out of the vehicle and fired two gunshots at the women following them.

The two women were drove away without any injuries.

Columbus police say if you see a crime, try to remember as much as you can about the suspects and their vehicle, but they say try not to follow suspects after the crime for your safety.

One of the witnesses says she was following instincts, but she's thankful everyone is okay.
