FERGUSON, MO (KMOX)- A 20-year-old man is expected to recover after being shot during a Christmas night robbery attempt in Ferguson.

Officer Tim Zoll tells KMOX the victim was walking down Northwinds Estates Drive off West Florissant at about 10:30 pm, “When two black males appeared from behind some bushes, armed with handguns and announced a robbery. When the victim denied having any money one of the subjects fired his weapon striking the victim in the upper leg.”

Zoll says the suspects, who were wearing dark clothing and ski masks, ran off. He says one suspect is about six feet tall with a thin build. The other is about 5′-7″ with a heavier build.

If you can help identify the suspects call Ferguson Police at 314-522-3100.
