Investigators also released new photos and details.They say the men were armed with military style weapons and were wearing hoodies that covered their faces. They all appear to be wearing glasses of some type the sheriff says.
The sheriff is urging the men to turn themselves in.
The three men attempted to break into the home of NASCAR Legend Richard Childress Sunday night, just before 10:30 p.m. Officers say a window was broken beside a door knob on the lower level of the home which activated an alarm.
Davidson County Sheriff Grice confirmed Childress fired shots at the three robbery suspects. Grice said it does not appear that any of the suspects were injured before getting away.
