The man, 32, was treated at Akron City Hospital for a gunshot wound to his arm.
He told police he was parked in the 900 block of Wall Street when two men approached. One of the men drew a pistol and demanded the victimís money. They then ordered the man out his van and fired a single shot before driving away in a 2001 Chevrolet Venture. The van has not been recovered.
