FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- Fayetteville police officers shot a robbery suspect during a chase along train tracks.
It all started Tuesday afternoon at the CVS on Ramsey Street when a man with a gun took money from the store.
When officers arrived, they were told a GPS tracker was placed in the money the man had stolen.
Officers ran after the man, who was still carrying the gun used during the robbery. Officers caught up with the robber on the train tracks at Moore Street and Mechanic Street.
That is when police officers shot at the suspect.
"Our officers did discharge their weapon, and of course as the investigation goes forward then of course that will be the SBI (State Bureau of Investigation), if they make determination that something else occurred during that time frame," Major Christopher Joyce said.
The man, who has not yet been identified, was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center to be treated for his injuries.
Fayetteville Police Department said officers recovered a gun at the scene.
The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the case, as is protocol for officer-involved shootings.
None of the officers reported being injured in the pursuit or shooting.
