COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Two men are being questioned by Richland County deputies for their suspected roles in an assault and armed robbery.

Deputies were called to Durant Street around 12:30 a.m. for reports of shots fired.

Two victims told deputies two men, one with a shot gun, the other with a handgun, demanded money from them.

The victims said one man fired a shot in the air before driving away in an SUV.

The victims told deputies the men then crashed the SUV and ran away.

Shortly after, deputies received a call of two men ringing door bells and knocking on doors on Gloria Trail.

Lt. Curtis Wilson with the Richland County Sheriff's Department says deputies identified those men as the suspects in an earlier crime.

The suspects' names have not been released.
