DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Police searched for three suspects they say tried to rob a man outside a gas station overnight, then then shot the man in the calf.
The shooting happened outside the Clark Station on Gettysburg Avenue in Dayton, around 12:15 a.m.
Officials said the victim and a friend were filling up at one of the pumps when the three people approached.
The victim fought back and an argument broke out. When the victim got into his van to drive away, one of the suspects pointed a gun into the van.
The victim tried to grab the gun, and that's when he was shot.
He drove himself to a home in the 1400 block of Guenther Drive in Trotwood, where medics picked him up and brought him to Miami Valley Hospital.
Officers said the victim is expected to recover.
