Detroit — A 24-year-old man is recovering after being shot Sunday during a pot deal on Detroit's east side, police said.

The shooting took place about 3:30 a.m. in the area of East Seven Mile and Eureka, east of Ryan, said Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood.

Police said the victim met two men allegedly to buy drugs. 

Instead, at least one of the suspects pulled a gun, and the pair robbed the victim of his cash before shooting him, police said.

The victim then drove himself to a hospital, where he was listed in temporary serious condition. 

Police said two men are wanted in connection to the shooting, but offered no description.
