DALLAS -- Police are looking for a suspect who robbed a man and inadvertently shot him in a popular part of Dallas' Oak Lawn neighborhood earlier this week.
At about 1:30 a.m. Thursday, the victim and a friend were walking to their car after leaving a bar in the 3900 block of Cedar Springs, near the popular bars Round-Up Saloon and Station 4.
The victim told officers a man walked up to them and pulled out a weapon, demanding their personal property. He then pointed the gun at the ground and fired once.
"A struggle between the victim and suspect ensued in between vehicles," police said. "The victim’s friend began to help him which caused the suspect to flee the location. The victim was grazed by the gunshot fragment but did not need medical attention."
Police believe the same suspect tried to rob someone else about 30 minutes before in the 4200 block of Maple Avenue, near the Dallas North Tollway.
