OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha Police arrested four people this morning after a failed robbery attempt.

Authorities were called to the Midtown Gas and Grocery at 13th and Martha Street around 3:20 a.m. Tuesday to investigate a report of shots fired.

Officers spoke with an employee who said two black males and two black females entered the business. One of the males attempted to take a case of beer, and the clerk deployed mace. The four parties then left the store without the beer. While leaving, one of the males shot at the employee multiple times. There were no injuries.

Almost two hours later, around 5:15 a.m. officers located the four suspects and took them into custody in the parking lot at Cubby's Convenient Store. Charges for the four suspects are pending.
