A MAN is in hospital today after being shot in both legs by a man who was apparently a stranger. Police say they are investigating this shooting and a separate armed robbery, both of which took place yesterday. The shooting victim, an unidentified 28-year-old St Vincent Road man, was at Second Street in Coconut Grove around 10am when he was approached by his attacker. Officers say that the attacker was unknown to the victim. He is said to be in stable condition. Two hours later, two men burst into Purity Bakery on Market Street armed with handguns and demanded cash. They made off with an undisclosed amount of money. Police are asking for the public's assistance in locating the men responsible for both incidents, and appealed to anyone with relevant information to call them on 911 or 919. Police investigations are continuing.
