A 15-year-old boy was recovering from a gunshot wound after being shot by men who tried to rob him.

Police say the boy walked out of a store at Bynum and Price just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

They say a group of men approached and demanded money.

When the teen showed them he had no money one of the men fired a shot hitting the boy in the leg, police say.

The teen told officers then men jumped in a Cadillac and drove away.

Police found that Cadillac crashed on a dead end street about a mile away.

EMS took the boy the University Hospital for treatment of that shot to the leg.

Police are now looking for the men who shot him.
