(WMC-TV) - Investigators say four armed men wearing ski and Jason hockey masks hit three different locations in a matters of hours across Shelby County Saturday night. The suburban crime spree left an elderly man shot from a home invasion.

The first robbery happened in the community of Waverly; investigators say four men robbed a man walking down the street.

Then four men, two wearing Jason hockey masks and two with pantyhose on their heads, robbed two men in Millington working on a car in the garage.

At least two of the four armed suspects walked up to the men working on their car told them to get on the ground. The suspects threatened to kill them and then robbed them of their wallet, keys and phones.

The men also tried to steal a dirt bike, but witnesses say they did not know how to ride it and crashed on a curb.

Shortly after that incident, Bartlett police said four armed men wearing ski masks kicked in the back door of a home on Old Brownsville Road where a 60-year-old man was inside with his 59-year-old wife. Investigators say she was hit in the head and her husband who ran for his gun was shot in the leg through a wall. The suspects then demanded he show them the safe.

The suspects took cash and jewelry. Police are not releasing the value of the stolen items. The shooting victim is still in The MED after having surgery on his leg.

Investigators are looking at the possibility all three crimes are related.

"We have our share of things but to have them back to back is pretty different," said Millington investigator Charlie Coleman.

There are no suspects in custody.
