Police say a Lincoln man is recovering after an attempted robbery and assault.
According to reports, it happened around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday when a 27-year-old and his friend were leaving the Kwik Shop at 44th and O Street after getting coffee.
The men walked across the street and were in a parking lot when police say five males jumped a nearby wall and confronted them.
One of the men had a gun and demanded money, according to police reports.
Officer Katie Flood says the victim explained he had no money, and one of the suspects hit him in the head and face.
She says the victim fought back and ran from the men.
Police say the victim heard three gunshots ring out as he was running away.
After he was treated for cuts to the back of his head, he arrested on six outstanding warrants.
His friend also has outstanding warrants and ran from the incident. He has not been interviewed by police.
Officer Flood said the suspects did take the victim's backpack, but it was found nearby and the victim said nothing was taken from it.
