St. Louis Metropolitan Police is searching for two men who they say robbed a man at gunpoint in a vacant lot Wednesday.

According to authorities, a man was walking through a vacant lot when he was approached by two men with guns who demanded cash from him.

Police said the men got away with an undetermined amount of money, cigarettes, and a cell phone.

The suspects immediately ran away from the alley while firing shots back at the victim, striking hit in the leg.

The victim ran to a family member’s home nearby and called police.

He was transported to local hospital and is expected to recover.

The investigation is ongoing.
