A man was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night on Carondelet Street, and, on Sunday, another man leaving a Gert Town store was shot in the stomach and critically wounded, according to initial reports.

Around 10:20 p.m. Saturday, a man was near Sixth Street and Carondelet when he was approached by three strangers who demanded to know what was in his bag, the report states. One then pulled out a gun and took $3.50 from him, then ran off.

Around 11:45 p.m. Sunday, a 39-year-old man was leaving a store in the 3300 block of Short Street (near Carrollton and Earhart) when two men followed him behind a car wash across the street, where they shot him in the stomach, the report states. He was listed in critical condition afterward, the report states.
