Police are investigating the shooting of a Waldburg Street resident in a reported robbery attempt.
Jeremy Lueken was transported to Memorial University Medical Center with a non-life threatening injury after the shooting on the 500 block of East Waldburg just after midnight.
Lueken and others "were on the back porch of the house when three black men in dark clothing with scarves covering their faces men approached," police say.
Two of them had guns and ordered the men on the porch to lay down. When Lueken did not, he was struck by a bullet. The robbers then fled.
