Las Vegas - Authorities say a gunman tried to rob a group of people playing the Pokemon Go game at a Las Vegas park, so a player pulled a firearm and the two shot each other.

Police Lt David Gordon says both men had non-life threatening injuries.

He says an armed man drove up to six people playing the popular cellphone game, which sends players to physical locations to "catch" virtual Pokemon characters.

The suspect demanded money and possessions at gunpoint early on Monday, and one of the Pokemon players drew his own gun.

The player was shot once and taken to a hospital. A man believed to be the suspect also appeared at the hospital with gunshot wounds. It wasn't clear if he has been arrested yet.
