Detroit — A man in his early 20s was walking at Braile and Cambridge early Friday when a suspect attempted to rob him and then shot at him, according to Detroit Police.

A black man of medium build armed with a handgun tried to rob the victim around 1:20 a.m. said Detroit Police spokesman Dontae Freeman. When the victim started to flee, the gunman fired several shots and wounded the victim.

The suspect then got into a dark-colored Pontiac driven by another man, and the two fled the scene in an unknown direction, Freeman said.

The victim ran home and was taken to the hospital by a family member. He is in stable condition.
