DOVER, Del.- The Delaware State Police are investigating a late Wednesday night shooting of a man who was robbed.
 
Police said the incident happened around 11:30 p.m. when a man walked into the Royal Farms store, located at 6 West Lebanon Road, bleeding from his head and reporting he had been shot.  

Authorities said the 34-year -old victim told police that he had been driving southbound on South State Street near Moore's Lake when a man dressed in all black clothing walked out in front of his vehicle.  

The victim said he rolled down his window and the suspect approached the driver's side brandishing a gun, demanding his money. The victim complied and turned over the money he had.
