Tempe police need the public's help in generating new leads in an appliance store robbery and shooting that left one employee wounded.

Officers released surveillance photos Tuesday in hopes someone will recognize the three suspects and help police solve the case.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. The suspects fled the area and have not been located.

The first suspect is described as a white male in his 30s. He had a moustache and was last seen wearing a yellow polo shirt with horizontal stripes, blue jeans and tan work boots.

The second suspect is a white or Hispanic man. He is described as between 5'10" to 6' tall. He has short "buzzed" hair. He was last seen wearing a black, longed-sleeved shirt under a white shirt with an "X" design and words on the front.

The third suspect has short, dark hair and was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt.

People with any information about their whereabouts are asked to call Silent Witness at WITNESS, or toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS.
