Robbery victim shot four times

Rob­bers shot an Ox­ford Circle man four times as the vic­tim walked near his home on Monday night, ac­cord­ing to Phil­adelphia po­lice.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the vic­tim as a 28-year-old man. The shoot­ing oc­curred near Lor­etto and Magee av­en­ues at about 9:30 p.m. when two rob­bers forced the vic­tim to lie on the ground while they took his be­long­ings, in­clud­ing about $500 cash. Even though the vic­tim sur­rendered his stuff, the crooks shot him any­way.

The vic­tim suffered wounds of the torso, groin and thigh, po­lice said. He was taken to Aria Health-Tor­res­dale in crit­ic­al but stable con­di­tion. Po­lice have not re­leased de­tailed de­scrip­tions of the rob­bers. ••
