CRIME ALERT: Update on 7th & Garfield Market Shooting

Metro Police finally got back to the Salemtown neighborhood association this afternoon about the shooting of the owner of the L & M Market in Salemtown the night before last:
The victim was going to his car when he was approached by a subject described as a male/black, approx 25 years old, 6'1" 180lbs wearing a black hoodie that had gold writing on it. He had a shotgun in his hand and surprised the victim. No words were exchanged, but the victim struggled with the gunman. The shotgun went off and the victim was shot in the leg. The suspect ran on foot and was seen leaving in a dark colored SUV. The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries. It appears this may have been a robbery attempt.
