A Columbus man was shot in the leg during a robbery Friday on Youmans Street at Fort Benning Road.

 The 19-year-old victim was treated for a wound to his left leg at Midtown Medical Center after the 12:05 p.m. shooting on the street. He was listed in fair condition.

 Police were called to hospital at 2:30 p.m., more than two hours later, to check on a shooting victim.

 The victim was confronted near his home by two men, one armed with a pistol, before a fight ensuede. The victim was pushed to the ground and shot in his left leg.

 The robbers may have fled in a 2010 or newer model Toyota or Honda with an unknown plate. The vehicle was described as white.
