A man was shot and injured at a south Fort Worth game room Wednesday night when he tried to prevent a robbery, police said.

Officers responded to a game room at 6938 South Freeway shortly after 10 p.m. They learned that two armed suspects had entered the game room and announced a robbery. A man at the scene pulled out a gun and tried to stop the robbery, police said.
