 VIRGINIA BEACH -- A man who was shot in Va. Beach Wednesday says he and some friends were shooting off fireworks in his driveway of his Gladstone Drive home.

The 21-year-old man, who asked not to be identified, said two men came around the corner around 10:30 p.m., exchanged words with the group and then a fight broke out. At some point, one of those men pulled a gun and shot him and then ran off.

Police said it appeared to be a robbery attempt, but the man said no one tried to rob him.

People on the street Thursday said that nothing like this has happened before. They say children live in the neighborhood and they're concerned youngsters could be caught in the crossfire.

Police had no information to release about the suspects.

Anyone who knows anything about the shooting should call Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
