Why a man was shot on S.E. 51st Avenue, just north of Gladstone Street, in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood, at about 10 p.m. on August 19, remains unclear, but the incident is described as a "street robbery"
What is certain is that East Precinct officers and emergency medical responders were called to the scene. "The injured male victim was transported by ambulance to the hospital, with what is considered to be a non-life threatening injury," a Bureau spokesperson told THE BEE.
"Due to the circumstances of the call, Robbery Detectives responded to conduct an investigation; no arrests have been made yet in this ongoing case," the police official said.
