Authorities say five male suspects are wanted for armed robbery of a north Fort Worth game room Wednesday. One of the men wore a clown mask and carried an assault rifle.
An 18-year-old woman was shot in the leg during the robbery of Nick's Game Room at 3841 Alta Mesa Blvd. The female victim was transported to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth in stable condition.
The incident began when Fort Worth police were called to the game room just after 4:15 a.m. According to police records, the five armed men robbed at least six customers of their cash and wallets inside the game room.
Surveillance video shows the five suspects entering the business and opening fire right away causing ceiling fragments to fall from the bullet impacts. Detective Brian Raynsford said, "They entered the game room and immediately opened fire."
"They fired randomly in the building and it resulted in the serious injury to one victim. They need to be taken into custody."

Police spokesman Tracy Carter said, "a large number of shell casings in the crime scene." The surveillance video shows five suspects last seen running toward the southeast from the business.
The game room contains video game consoles where customers can play slots, video poker, and other games that offer "credits" instead of cash payouts.
