Attempted robbery suspect shot

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Henrico police are investigating an attempted robbery that ended in a shooting! A man with a knife tried to rob a coin shop at 14 East Nine Mile Road. It's not the first time the shop's been robbed -- but today, things ended a little differently.

Police won't say officially that the shop owner shot the man trying to rob his business, but it doesn't take too much to draw that conclusion.

Late Thursday afternoon, a man with a knife broke into the A To Z Coin Shop on East Nine Mile Road looking for cash. He didn't get very far.

Police were called to the scene and when they got there a man matching the suspect's description was found nearby with a gunshot wound.

He was taken to VCU Medical Center and was rushed into surgery, but is expected to be ok. Charges are still pending.

Police are still waiting to talk to the alleged suspect. They aren't looking for the person who shot him.
