SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. - Two women were robbed at gunpoint by three men on Draymont Drive in Spartanburg County late Tuesday night, according to deputies.

Investigators tell us one of the victims was shot.  They also say one of the women shot both suspects.  All three were taken to the hospital with the victim being in the worst shape.

Deputies say they think the men followed the victims home from an ATM.  According to a news release, one of the suspects kept one of the victims inside the vehicle while the second suspect took the other toward the front of the door of the home. 

The suspect with the victim in the car then shot her multiple times, investigators say.  The reason is unknown at this time.

That's when they say the woman at the door pulled out a gun and shot two of the suspects.

Those two suspects are in custody and have been charged.  They are Nicholas Tavoris Bobo, 23, and Dominick Antonio Thompson, 22, who are facing charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Investigators say they are looking for a third suspect in the case, Letoshmen Bobo, 24, who is wanted on the same charges.  Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Bobo is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

Sheriff Chuck Wright held a news conference Wednesday afternoon and is giving a pat on the back to the woman who was armed and kept her friend from being shot more times.

"She did what I said to do," he explained. 

In November, 2011, Wright urged women to arm themselves after a woman was raped in broad daylight in Milliken park.

During Wednesday's news conference, Wright said it's disturbing when two ladies can't go to the atm and not get robbed on the way home.  He calls it "the ultimate time to defend yourself."

Wright also gave a pat on the back to a neighbor who heard the noise and used a shotgun to hit one of the suspects in the face.

The victim is listed in serious condition at the hospital.
