A Columbus man ended up in the hospital Thursday after several men robbed him then shot him in the thigh, police said.
The 43-year-old man was admitted at The Medical Center and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, said Columbus Police Lt. Lynn Joiner.
Police were called around 1:50 p.m. to a Sheridan Avenue home, where they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the left thigh.
Joiner said the victim and his sister were at the grocery store earlier when they met five men, whom they invited back to the victim’s sister’s house.

While three of the men were inside, two went outside to the front, where the victim was. That’s when they robbed and shot him in the driveway, police said.
The five men fled in a gray Chevy Suburban with dark-tinted windows.
