LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A man delivering Chinese food was shot at Saturday night after he wouldn't give money to men who demanded it, according to Lafayette police.
It happened just after 7:30 p.m. in the 1400 block of Main Street, near the Five Points intersection. According to Lt. Matt Gard, three men approached the driver when he got out of his car. One of the men demanded money and showed a gun.
