According to Anniston police Capt. Allen George, the victim was walking his two dogs at the intersection of Oak Ridge Avenue and 41st Street around 6:30 p.m. when a dark vehicle pulled up behind them.
The victim told police that the suspects in the vehicle demanded money, George said. The captain said the report did not mention how many people were in the vehicle or provide any description of them.
The captain said the victim told the suspects he did not have any money and started walking toward a wooded area nearby.
According to George, the victim heard the vehicle doors open and the suspects asked for money again. The victim told police he heard a gunshot and hid behind a tree.
The captain said the victim heard three more gunshots before the suspects got back into the vehicle and drove away.
George said the case was under investigation this morning. Any suspects could face felony charges of first-degree robbery, according to a police report.
