Man shot in foot during scuffle with robber

 

 

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a gunman in an armed robbery Friday morning.

Alanzo Triplin, of Augusta, was approached by a man in a purple sleeveless shirt with short dreadlocks at 2233 Martin Luther King Blvd. shortly after 11 a.m., a police report said.

The man told Triplin to hand over his money, and when he refused, pulled a handgun and demanded money again, the report said.

Triplin tried to defend himself and was shot in the right foot during the scuffle. The robber put the gun to Triplin’s head and again demanded money, after which Triplin handed over his wallet with $400 inside.

Triplin made his way back to the front of the building and asked someone to call the police, the report said.

The robber, described as black between ages 25 and 30, scaled a fence and heading toward Olive Road.
