HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Hollywood police are searching for two men they say attempted to rob a man and woman near the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino early Friday morning. 

Several police units reported to the scene along Stirling Road near the intersection of State Road 7 after the pair said they were approached by two men who demanded her purse. 

A struggle followed afterward and a shot was fired. No one appeared to be hit and the purse was not taken. 

Police are now looking for two men believed to be in their 20s. 

Local 10 News was at the scene when the woman was put into an ambulance on a gurney. She told police that she could not hear out of one ear. A man was also spotted on the sidewalk, surrounded by police.
