Man Shot During Robbery on New Haven Street: Police

A man was shot during a robbery while waiting for a friend on a New Haven street early Sunday morning.

Police said the man reported he was standing near the intersection of Nash and Lawrence Streets around 2:40 a.m. while he waited for a friend.

A man wearing a face mask approached the man, showed a handgun and demanded his valuables, police said. After taking the man's money, the masked man shot him in the leg, officers added.

The masked man then fled on foot on Lawrence Street toward Nicoll Street.

The man who was shot was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital with a non-life threatening injury, authorities said.

A crime scene was held overnight while detectives canvassed the area. The streets have since reopened.
