WINTER PARK, Fla. – Deputies are investigating after a man was shot in an attempted robbery in Winter Park Friday evening.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said two men followed a man who left his house on Moss Grove Circle.

At some point, there was a confrontation in the area of University Boulevard near the 417.

A suspect then walked up to the man, who was in his car, pointed a gun at him and demanded his necklace, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The man refused, so the suspect shot him in the shoulder before taking off.

The victim called police and gave them description of the car and suspect.

Deputies later found the suspects, whose ages are 25 and 28 and they're now in custody.

No further information was immediately released.
