Uniondale (WALK) - A crime in Nassau County late Sunday night is a reminder that drug dealing isn't a very safe way to make a living.
Detectives in Nassau say that a man who'd arranged to meet someone to sell them marijuana was shot and wounded during a botched robbery. The 31-year-old victim and his 24-year-old girlfriend were waiting in his car on Jaffa Avenue in Uniondale, where he'd gone to meet a customer, when two men jumped in the back seat and demanded "everything you got." The victim was then shot in the back.
The victim, whose name has not been released by police, was taken to a hospital for treatment. The gunmen got away without anything. The woman was not hurt.
The suspects were described only as wearing gray hoodies. They were last seen running south on Matteline Street.
Detectives ask that anyone with information about this robbery attempt call Nassau Crime Stoppers at (800) 244-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
