A 22-year-old Rock Hill man was shot multiple times this week during an armed robbery in which the victim's car was the target, according to police.
Ricky Price was shot in the groin area as well as his right hip and left hand, according to a Rock Hill Police Department report. Price was taken to Piedmont Medical Center before being transferred to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, where he was listed Wednesday in good condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Police Lt. Larry Vaughan said no arrests have been made in the robbery. It happened Tuesday in the 700 block of Chestnut Street.
Around 5:40 p.m., Price told police that he was flagged down near Walnut Street by a group of black males who inquired about a lift kit, a device on Price's white 1984 Chevy Caprice, the report states.

As Price talked with the group, an armed man with a black bandanna covering his face came from behind a house, pointed a pistol at Price and demanded that he "give it up," according to the report.
According to the report, Price tried to grab the pistol, but was shot in the groin area as well as in the right hip and left hand. The group left the area with Price's car.
Price was taken to his home and then to PMC.
His car was located in front of 819 Walnut St., according to the report.
A witness told police that a black man with short deadlocks dressed in black pants, a shirt and tennis shoes got out of the car and asked the witness for a ride on his bike.
The witness took the man to 361 Workman St., where he walked behind the house and disappeared. A police dog was unable to track the man.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Rock Hill Police Department at 329-7200 or CrimeStoppers of York County at 1-877-409-4321.
