Two individuals have been arrested in connection with an aggravated robbery in Garland on Sept. 5.

According to the Garland Police Department, officers responded to an aggravated robbery where shots were fired in the 2800 block of Cumberland Drive shortly before 10 p.m.

Police said that officers at the scene learned the victim had just arrived home when a gray BMW drove by with its headlights turned off. 

The BMW turned around and parked several houses away from where the victim was parked, and as the victim retrieved items from his vehicle, two suspects with handguns approached him and demand his belongings, police said. 

The victim produced a handgun in defense and the suspects fled back to the BMW.
