Police said a preliminary investigation revealed the victim was walking in the 3900 block of Boarman Ave. when he was approached by an unidentified man who announced a robbery and shot the victim. The victim then did not report to a hospital until 3:15 p.m.

In a separate shooting Saturday evening, Northeast District police officers responded around 9:35 p.m. to a report of a walk-in shooting victim at an area hospital, where they found an 18-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the leg.
