The Nicholasville Police Department is searching for two men who robbed a stranger Monday.

The two asked the victim for a ride while they were all at the Five Star Gas Station on South Main Street in Nicholasville, Officer Kevin Grimes said in a news release. The suspects asked the victim to drive them to a location off John Sutherland Drive.

“When they arrived at the intersection of John Sutherland and Platt, the male black with the black hat on pulled out a gun and ordered the victim to give him his money,” Grimes said. “He complied with the suspect and gave him the money, but then a struggled ensued and a round was fired from the gun.”

No one was injured from the gunshot, Grimes said.

The Nicholasville Police Department is asking anyone who recognizes the men to call 859-885-9467.
