CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

19 Action News has just confirmed that a Cleveland Police officer is at MetroHealth after a struggle with a potential robbery suspect. 

The officer was not shot -- but the man he was struggling with was. 

The call came over the scanner in the 9 p.m. hour, "Four men with guns. 34th and Payne."

A Family Dollar sits at that location.

Witnesses tell 19 Action News the suspect ran by them with the police chasing them, and an ambulance was at the scene. Again, one of the suspects was shot by a CPD officer. The officer was also injured and both were taken to MetroHealth.

Family Dollar is located at 3407 Payne Avenue. Officers do have two robbery suspects in custody, and are trying to determine if there are more.
