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.

Police said the driver ran away and he was shot at one to two times. The rounds hit his car, and he was not hurt. A nearby officer heard the shots and responded, but did not find the men. 

Police say the three men were in their 20s and wearing hooded sweatshirts at the time.
