Upon arrival, officers learned it was an attempted armed robbery of three citizens. The victims, a 16-year-old male, a 17-year-old male and a 19-year-old male, were standing in the hallway entrance of an apartment building when two suspects approached them and demanded that the victims hand over their property.
