Man shot in Orlando after refusing to hand over wallet, police say

Victim taken to hospital; gunman sought

ORLANDO, Fla. – A man was shot several times early Tuesday at an Orlando apartment complex after he refused to hand over his wallet during a robbery attempt, police said.

Orlando police are looking for the gunman, who shot the victim at the Windsor Cove apartments off Mercy Drive.

Police said the gunman approached the victim, demanded his wallet and shot him when he refused. 

The gunman ran away after the shooting, police said. A description of the man has not been released.

The victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition and is expected to recover, according to police.

Last month, a man was shot and killed at the same apartment complex. Police later made an arrest in that case.
