While there, he admitted that he, too, had a gun, and he had returned fire at his assailant.
Police then were notified that a young man who had been struck a glancing blow in the head by a bullet was also admitted to the hospital. This man's description and his injury were consistent with what the older man had told the police occurred during the aborted robbery.
This younger man gave the police several different accounts of how he was injured. Police continue to question both men this morning.
