The man was severely injured during a robbery attempt outside a store in southeast Fort Worth Thursday, according to police.

A man was pistol-whipped and severely injured during a robbery attempt outside a store in southeast Fort Worth, according to police.

Initially, police responded to a shooting call shortly before 1 p.m. at Wayne's Grocery in the 1700 block of Vaughn Boulevard. Officers later determined it was a robbery and a victim had been beaten.

"A customer walked in and told us that he had just seen another customer hit in the head with a gun," employee Susana Vazquez said Thursday afternoon. "I went outside and found the man knocked out."

Vazquez also said the victim had suffered a deep cut to his left cheek.

Police Capt. J.C. Stockton said no shots were fired.

"A Hispanic man had just exited the store," Stockton said. "A suspect walked up to the victim and struck him."

The suspect then fled south on Vaughn Boulevard.

The customer was taken to the hospital by ambulance and was in serious condition, MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said.

Police are searching for a suspect.

Fort Worth Police and the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office are looking for these 10 fugitives. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. Call 817-469-8477.
