A West Avenue man was shot twice Saturday night during a struggle with two robbers at the front door of his home.
Lester Moody, 20, told detectives he answered a knock at the door at 6:42 p.m. at the second-floor apartment on the 200 block of West where he is staying with a relative.
"The robbers said put your hands up, and he fought, getting a pellet gun away from one of them, but the other robber shot him in the stomach and left side with a handgun," a police official said.
Moody was taken to Erie County Medical Center, where he was undergoing emergency surgery. His condition was not available.
