A man standing behind his Buena Vista Road apartment complex was shot four times during an attempted armed robbery Sunday evening, police said.
The 21-year-old was behind Vista Estates, 2983 Buena Vista Road, around 6 p.m. when the masked suspect approached with a gun in his hand demanding the bag full of CDs he was holding, said Lt. Charles Kennedy.
“He refused to give the bag to the individual, and then he was shot,” the lieutenant added.
The man moved his left arm to block the gunfire and was struck once in the forearm. The suspect also shot him three times in the stomach, Kennedy said.
The suspect ran from the scene, and the man was taken to The Medical Center, where he underwent surgery Sunday night. His condition was critical, Kennedy added.
