A 21-year-old man was shot as he tried to escape an armed robber in the Park Manor neighborhood early this morning, authorities said.

About 1 a.m., the assailant approached the man in the 6900 block of South Eberhart Avenue and attempted to rob him, Police News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

The man tried to run away but was shot in the foot, Gaines said. He was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in good condition.

No suspects were in custody.
