Police: Victim shoots robber

The driver of a lunch wagon shot a man who was trying to rob him this afternoon at Millsdale Street at Curzon Avenue, just west of Anthony Wayne Avenue, police said.

Cincinnati Police Lt. Chris Matzen said three young men tried to rob the driver of the lunch wagon at about 12:30 p.m.

During the incident, shots reportedly were fired by one of the three men.

Matzen said the lunch wagon driver pulled out a concealed weapon and shot and hit one of the three. The wounded man was taken to University Hospital, where he went into surgery.

A search is on for the two other men.

The lunch wagon remained in the middle of the cordoned-off intersection this afternoon. Evidence cards were being placed in the street.
