A Columbus man was shot early Wednesday morning, according to police.
The man told police he was in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Oakview Avenue shortly after 12 a.m. when he was approached by three men.
He said they attempted to rob him and shot him after he tried to run away.
The man was taken to The Medical Center, where he was in guarded condition, according to a police report.
The suspects were described as three men -- one standing about 5-feet-11-inches tall with a slim build, the second standing about 5-feet-8-inches tall with a heavy-set build and a third of an unknown height and weight.
Two of the suspects were carrying a shotgun and a revolver.
The case remains under investigation.
