Police said around 10:35 p.m. Tuesday a man was withdrawing money from the ATM at 900 W. Central Texas Expressway, when a man wearing a mask and hooded sweatshirt walked up to him, pulled out a gun and demanded money.

The suspect fired one shot in the air and told the victim to get on the ground.

Witnesses told police they saw a light-colored vehicle leaving the scene shortly after that.

That victim was not injured.

Around 11:50 p.m. another man was trying to withdraw money from the same USAA ATM, when two suspects walked up to him from behind the building.

One of the suspects pulled out a gun, and demanded the victim's ATM card.

When the victim hesitated, police said the suspect with the gun pistol-whipped the victim, knocking him out.

Police said when the victim came to, the suspects were gone.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to Call Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-TIPS.
