DENVER -- Two armed would-be robbers were bloodied by irate family members Wednesday morning in what police say was the first shooting at a medical marijuana dispensary in Denver.
Rafael Hernandez said he and other medical-marijuana entrepreneurs suspect the two robbers were the same men who have recently robbed two nearby dispensaries, including a Tuesday night stickup at a place called "Mr. Stinky’s" at Third Avenue and Federal Boulevard.
"They match the descriptions of the guys who've been robbing dispensaries up and down Federal," Rafael Hernandez said.
