A DPS violent crimes squad was working the scene in the 12000 block of Tidwell Road, they added.
According to authorities, the robbery suspects backed their vehicle toward the law enforcement officials, who then fired an unknown number of shots at the suspects, striking the vehicle.
No one was injured in the shooting, officials said.
