Officers contacted the victim who explained that unknown suspects had attempted to rob him on Pine Street near Lincoln School. During the course of the robbery attempt he was shot by one of the suspects at close range under his chin. The victim suffered moderate facial/mouth injuries and is expected to fully recover.

The suspects were described as two white males –

1. White male adult, appx 20-21 years old, 5’-11", 6’-00", short blond hair, last seen wearing white t-shirt and jeans armed with an unknown caliber handgun.

2. White male adult, 18-20 years, collar length hair , last seen wearing a black sweatshirt with "ECHO" printed on the front, bright blue jeans.

The suspects were last seen fleeing the area in an older white Chevy Nova with a bad spray paint job.
