Police confirmed an overnight officer-involved shooting took place at an Agua Caliente Casino parking structure in Palm Springs early Wednesday morning.

A KESQ News Channel 3 crew reported a heavy police presence was still on scene and the parking garage remained shut down as of 7:30 a.m.

According to police, the officer-involved shooting took place after an attempted armed robbery and an armed robbery involving two suspects early Wednesday morning.

Police say two men robbed a woman of her purse at gunpoint in the parking garage at 2:03 a.m. Casino security called police and when the two suspects tried to escape the garage, police were able to block their car, a white sedan.

A shooting took place between officers and the two suspects, who were taken into custody. Police say the men were expected to survive and none of the three officers involved in the altercation were injured.

The same two suspects were reported by security as casing the parking structure at 12:30 a.m. then returning and attempting to rob another person at 12:45 a.m.
