2 men sought in shootout with armed guard in Reno

RENO, Nev. ” Reno police say they’re looking two men who escaped after a shootout with an armed security guard who told investigators he interrupted an apparent vehicle break-in.

Police say 16 shots were exchanged in the gunfire about 3:35 a.m. Monday on Wedekind Road.

The Martin and Ross Security guard wasn’t wounded. It wasn’t immediately known if the gunman or a getaway driver was hurt when the guard returned fire.

The guard told police the gunman kept shooting from a silver or gold four-door sedan as it drove away after at least one vehicle in the area was burglarized.

Both men were described as wearing dark hooded sweat shirts.
