Police arrived on the scene in the 100 block of North Vermont Avenue to find the male shot in the stomach. His name is not yet being released.

Three males were victims of a robbery by anywhere from four to six young black males, Brennan said. Two of the victims ran, while the third stayed to fight the attackers, and was shot.

An investigation is ongoing to see whether there was a relationship between the victim and his attackers.

At least one arrest is pending, Brennan said.
