— The Nash County Sheriff’s Office was investigating an attempted robbery of the Econo Lodge on Tuesday night.

At about 10:45 p.m., two black men with shot guns entered the lodge, at 3714 Fluellen Road, and demanded money, authorities said.

The attendant managed to get away and run into the bar area. The two men then ran away empty-handed, officials said.

There is no surveillance video or pictures, and the men were still on the loose Wednesday.
