COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Police say a 27-year-old man is "really lucky" after walking away with minor injuries after being shot during an attempted robbery Sunday morning.

The victim was walking home from the store around 2:45 a.m. when a man in a white car called out to him. The victim approached the vehicle and was promptly ordered to hand over his valuables. The victim ran from the car and was shot fleeing the scene. The bullet only grazed him.

Police tell 11 News there were several suspects in the car but did not have any descriptions. Officers did not know exactly what was said to the victim to get him to come over to the car.
