  • The 2800 block of Sarah, where a 42-year-old man was shot after an attempted mugging yesterday.
A 42-year-old man was shot around 4:30 p.m. yesterday in the 2800 block of Sarah, which is near Vandeventer and St. Louis Avenue in north city.

He told police that he was heading north on Sarah when three black males approached him and demanded his wallet. When he refused -- and took off running -- one of the suspects opened fire. He was shot in the back.

The man is in stable condition. One of the suspects is described as a black man in his early 30s, about 6'2" and 185 pounds, with short hair and a dark complexion. He was wearing a red shirt, red shorts and white tennis shoes.

The investigation is ongoing.
