Man robbed, shot walking in Northeast Dallas

A man was shot in the chest, around 10:30 Wednesday night, during a robbery. Dallas police say the man was walking on the campus of Sam Tasby Middle School, at 7001 Fair Oaks Avenue, when at least two men demanded his phone and wallet.

The man was shot by one of the robbers even after he complied.  The robbers ran away and the shooting victim ran across the street to a convenience store for help. 

Paramedics arrived shortly after and took the man to a nearby hospital in serious condition.

Police are trying to determine if the same suspects are responsible for another robbery that took place earlier in the night.  Investigators have not released the victim's name or a description of the suspects.
