A 36-year-old Sacramento man was shot outside a Vallejo bar over the weekend after emptying his pockets for an armed robber.
The man, Aaron Anderson, was transported by ambulance to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Anderson was leaving My Office bar on the 2400 block of Sacramento Street with an associate around 1:45 a.m. Sunday when he was approached by a man in the parking lot, Vallejo Police Sgt. Herman Robinson said.
The man, described as a 5-foot-5 inch black male with dreadlocks, was near a white van when he approached Anderson and demanded that he empty his pockets, Robinson said.
Though Anderson complied, the suspect shot him in the left side of his abdomen and fled in the van.
Three to four other men, described as Hispanic or Samoan, also were in the van, Robinson said.
Anderson returned to the bar where he laid across a pool table and police were called. Anderson's associate was not injured.
