CLEVELAND (WJW) — A man has been charged after police reports say he was shot with his own gun during a robbery at a Target parking lot last Wednesday.
Antwan Pryor, 20, faces a charge of aggravated robbery in the case.
The shooting happened in the Target parking lot located at 3100 West 117 Street.
When officers arrived at the scene, medics were there treating Pryor for a gunshot wound to his midsection.
Police were told Pryor and the victim were communicating for a few days. They both agreed to meet in the Target parking lot so Pryor could buy an iPhone from the victim, police reports state.
Pryor got out of his car and got into the passenger seat of the victim’s vehicle, the victim told police. That is when they began talking about the sale. At some point during the conversation, Pryor allegedly took out a gun and pointed it at the victim, according to police reports.
The victim said Pryor then told him to give him all of “his stuff.” He then took the phones and the victim’s wallet, the victim told the police.
The victim, fearing that he was going to be shot, grabbed the gun and tried to get it away from Pryor, police were told. The two men fought over the gun. It was turned toward Pryor and went off, police reports state.
The victim then tried to get out of the vehicle and started yelling for someone to call the police, reports state. He then allegedly pulled Pryor out of the vehicle and put him on the ground, according to police reports.
Police said Pryor was in stable condition when he was taken to the hospital.
