Man shot, car stolen during armed robbery at St. Petersburg laundromat

The man, who has not been identified, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A man was shot and his car was stolen during an armed robbery Monday night at a laundromat in St. Petersburg.

According to police, a 36-year-old man was shot in the parking lot of a laundromat in the 8100 block of 4th Street N. around 11:30 p.m. His black 2008 Ford Mustang was stolen, as well.

The man, who has not been identified, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Investigators believe the shooter may also have been involved in a carjacking at the same location on Aug. 26. In that case, the victim was loading laundry into his car when the suspect pointed a gun at him and demanded his keys. The victim in that case was not shot.

The investigation is ongoing.

Police ask that anyone who has seen the vehicle or has information to call (727) 893-7780 or send an anonymous message by texting"SPPD" and their tip to TIP-411.
