LANCASTER — A Lancaster man who gave three strangers a ride to the grocery store is in stable condition after his passengers allegedly robbed and shot him early Friday, police say.
The man, whose age was not available, told police that while he was in the area between Saint Paul Street and Thomas Lane, he was flagged down by a man and two women who asked for a ride to a gas station, said Lancaster Police Capt. Scott Grant.
When they left the store, the man told police the other man pulled out a gun and robbed him, police say. The robber made him drive around and told him to empty his pockets.
The gunman then instructed the victim to drive to an apartment complex near Chesterfield Avenue, Grant said. As the victim pulled into the parking lot and tried to jump into the parking lot, he was shot in the back.
He was taken to Springs Memorial Hospital and later flown to Carolinas Medical Center. He is in stable condition, Grant said.
No suspect information was available.
