Police believe the incident was a targeted robbery. They contacted the victim on scene who said a gun was pulled on him. Police are now working to determine whether the gun was real or fake. SPD has not found any shell casings outside, so they are working to get a warrant to go inside the building.

The victim did not have any life threatening injuries, he did not have to go to the hospital. Again, police believe this was a targeted attack and are not worried about the safety of neighbors in the area. @kxly4news pic.twitter.com/ItPS91v4hF
