HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Two people are facing charges in a robbery where two men, including one of the suspects, were shot in the chest early Friday at a suburban Harrisburg hotel.

Swatara Township police said they will charge Mario Rudolpha Shockley, 25, and Brittany Elizabeth Pitts, 23, both of York, with robbery, aggravated assault, and felon not to possess a firearm.

Police said the victim of the robbery turned up at the Capital Diner, at 800 Eisenhower Boulevard, shortly after 1 a.m. and reported that he had been robbed at the Rodeway Inn, at 631 Eisenhower Boulevard.

The victim, who was not identified, also told officers he has a gun permit and had shot the man who was robbing him, police said. Shockley then fired back and hit the victim.

Authorities said the victim had gone to the motel to meet Pitts, a prostitute, for sex.

"That individual arrived believing he was arriving there for that purpose," District Attorney Ed Marsico said. "When he was robbed by the two individuals, the gun was pointed at him."

Police said they stopped Pitts as she was driving away from the Rodeway Inn and found Shockley hiding in the back of the vehicle.

He was transported to Penn State Hershey Medical Center, where the victim was also being treated for his wounds, police said.
