Chief Kevin Davis said the department would start a homicide investigation.
The man was shot around 5:20 a.m. on Wednesday in the 2900 block of Annandale Road. He had stopped on his way to work to withdraw money from an ATM when a man approached and tried to rob him.
When the attacker pulled out a handgun, the victim was startled and dropped his wallet and its contents. As he turned to enter his ATM pin into the machine, the attacker shot him in the chest — a move that Davis said on Wednesday was “outrageous.”
The attacker fled without stealing anything from the victim, who was found by a bicyclist around 6:15 a.m. Despite emergency surgery, the man succumbed to his injuries.
No arrests have been made.
