Robbery results in shooting at 18th and Dolores

A 29-year-old man was shot near the intersection of 18th and Dolores streets Thursday evening, after an attempted robbery resulted in the discharging of a firearm.

Around 9 p.m. the victim was approached by two suspects, who asked him for a cigarette. The victim told them he didn’t smoke, but did pull out a lighter when asked. At the same time, one suspect pulled out a handgun.

A fight ensued, with the victim grabbing on to the gun. While struggling, the second suspect took the victim’s wallet from his pants pocket. The gun then discharged, hitting the victim and causing injuries.

Both suspects fled on foot towards Diamond Heights Boulevard.

The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
