    Two teens who tried to hold up a Mid-South credit union now face federal charges.

    Memphis police say on Friday, October 13, the two suspects were spotted casing the American Savings Credit Union on Harvester.

    When the two entered the building, a local vendor shot one of the suspects in the throat.

    Investigators say the shooting was an act of self-defense.

    Both robbers then fled the credit union on foot.

    Police arrested the pair a short distance from the credit union.

    The injured robber, 18-year-old Everett Jamison, was taken to the Med in critical condition.

    Jamison remains in the hospital.

    He is charged with one count of violation of the Federal Bank Robbery Statute.

    18-year-old Anthony Spates faces the same charge.
