A 44-year-old man was shot around 9:45 p.m. Thursday in a robbery attempt under the overpass bridge near Carondelet Street, authorities said.
The victim told police he was under the bridge at Calliope and Carondelet when he was approached by a man with a gun who demanded money, according to an initial police report. He refused and heard a shot ring out, then walked to a gas station at Lee Circle where he discovered that he had been shot, the police report states.
The victim is described in the report as “extremely intoxicated and uncooperative.”
