NEW YORK - Police say a group of robbers shot and wounded a man in Manhattan this month when he resisted giving them his jewelry.
According to authorities, just before 1:30 a.m. on June 11, four suspects approached the victim, a 23-year-old man on West 207th Street in Inwood.
The suspects grabbed the man and attempted to take his jewelry, and when the suspect resisted, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot him multiple times in the torso, buttocks and leg.
The suspects then took the victim's watch and ran away in a white Mercedes-Benz being driven by a fifth suspect.
The victim was taken to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.
