4 sought after elderly man shot

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) - Detroit police are seeking four suspects who attempted to rob and then shot a man on Detroit's west side.

A 73-year-old man was walking home from a gas station near Eight Mile and Greenfield roads Sunday night when four people began following him, according to police.

When the man was a few blocks away, the suspects approached him, demanded money and shot him before he had a chance to give them any cash.

He was shot in his side and is still in the hospital recovering.

Police have released surveillance images of the suspects hoping the public can help identify them. Detectives say the suspect in the black sweatshirt fired the gun.

If you recognize the men in the photos contact the Detroit Police Department.

UPDATED TO ADD:
Detroit police says two suspects turned themselves in shortly after seeing their photos on TV.
