AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

Macon and Lee County investigators are looking for two suspects who allegedly shot and injured a man, not once, but twice this week during two separate shootings.

Investigators say the injured man was shot and injured at an abandoned gas station along County Road 199 in Macon County at 9:30 a.m.

The victim then drove himself about 15 miles to the Hampton Inn Parking lot in Auburn. Auburn police found the victim, still in his shot-up red SUV, and took him to the hospital. 

Macon Co. Sheriff Andre Brunson says his investigators spoke with the victim and he told them the same suspect shot and injured him on Saturday.

“My investigators spoke with the victim and this was the second time the victim was shot by the same person, we don’t know his medical condition," Brunson said. 

Sheriff Brunson says investigators know the two men they are looking for, but are not releasing their names. Sheriff Brunson says it appears this case may be linked to a robbery that happened last week.

Meanwhile, a friend who was with the gunshot victim was arrested at the scene for possession of prescription pills.          

Sheriff Brunson says it appears this case may be linked to a robbery that happened last week.

He is urging Lee and Macon County residents to be on guard, saying while this shooting appears to be targeted, it’s always a dangerous situation when police are looking for two armed suspects.
