An apparent attempted robbery went wrong Tuesday night, leaving a Vredenburgh store owner with a gunshot wound, officials said.
Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Randall Jernigan said details were limited because of the active investigation, but confirmed it was the store owner and that the incident took place around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
The victim was taken by LifeFlight, but what hospital he is in or an updated condition were not available.
“This is all still under investigation,” Jernigan said.
