Two men wearing ski masks and carrying handguns forced their way into an apartment and shot him several times shortly after midnight Monday morning. (Information has been changed to correct an error at 10 a.m. 1/10/13. See correction at end of story.)
The 23-year-old victim, who lives in the 1700 block of Fulton Road NW, was alone about 12:30 a.m. Monday when the shooting occurred, Canton police reports said.
Capt. Dave Davis, who heads the police department’s detective bureau, said detectives believe the men attempted to rob the victim when they shot him, grazing his abdomen and striking him twice in the legs.
The victim’s condition was not available Tuesday.
Police seized an undisclosed amount of marijuana, grinders and pipes, Davis said.
Detectives were still investigating on Tuesday.
They asked anyone with information about the incident to call them at 330-489-3144.
