A Temple student was shot during an alleged armed robbery around 1:00 a.m. on Saturday along the 1500 block of North 17th Street. The student was standing outside of a Temple fraternity house that was holding a party when the gunman approached him.

After being denied entry into the party, the suspect demanded that the student give him everything that was on him, flashing a silver handgun in his waistband. The student then ran at the gunman and was shot in the left thigh and hip.

The victim was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital and is in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries. The gunman did not take anything off the victim.

The gunman was described as an African-American male between 35 and 40 years old with no facial hair. He was wearing a red hoodie, blue jeans, and a red beanie hat. The police later confirmed this description.

Further investigation is underway regarding the shooting as the police continue to search for the gunman.
