Man shot in robbery near Arlington

A man was shot in the leg during a robbery in Arlington Wednesday night, police said.

The man was walking home near South Arlington Ridge Road and South Lang Street at about 8:30 p.m. when a suspect approached him and demanded money at gunpoint, police said.

The victim sustained a single gunshot wound to the left leg, and the suspect fled with an undetermined amount of money. Police said it was unclear whether the suspect took the money before or after shooting the victim, who was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police set up a wide perimeter and searched for the suspect with a helicopter and K-9 units, but they were unsuccessful. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
