Man Accosted And Shot

A man is in serious condition after he was robbed and shot Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

Reports are that it was shortly after noon that the man was sitting in his Ford Ranger truck at Yamacraw Beach when a man armed with a handgun entered his truck and ordered him to drive to an ATM machine on Wulff Road where he forced him two withdraw some cash.

The gunman then ordered the man to drive to an area in western New Providence, where he shot him and then forced him out of the vehicle before speeding off.

The victim was transported to hospital where he is listed in serious condition.

Police later recovered the victim’s truck abandoned in an area off Carmichael Road.

In an earlier incident, a man was walking on Miami Street and Cordeaux Avenue around 12:30am yesterday, when a man armed with a handgun approached and shot him before fleeing on foot.

The victim was rushed to hospital where his condition is listed as stable.

Investigations continue into both incidents.
