The shooting happened in the Target parking lot located at 3100 West 117 Street.

When officers arrived at the scene, medics were there treating Pryor for a gunshot wound to his midsection.

Police were told Pryor and the victim were communicating for a few days. They both agreed to meet in the Target parking lot so Pryor could buy an iPhone from the victim, police reports state.

Pryor got out of his car and got into the passenger seat of the victim’s vehicle, the victim told police. That is when they began talking about the sale. At some point during the conversation, Pryor allegedly took out a gun and pointed it at the victim, according to police reports.

The victim said Pryor then told him to give him all of “his stuff.” He then took the phones and the victim’s wallet, the victim told the police.

The victim, fearing that he was going to be shot, grabbed the gun and tried to get it away from Pryor, police were told. The two men fought over the gun. It was turned toward Pryor and went off, police reports state.

The victim then tried to get out of the vehicle and started yelling for someone to call the police, reports state. He then allegedly pulled Pryor out of the vehicle and put him on the ground, according to police reports.

Police said Pryor was in stable condition when he was taken to the hospital.

hey a broygotta do what he had to do to save his own life...and the robber got what he was going to do to the victim. . these days these people will kill you for no reason at all .I'm glad that the robber survived so maybe he will be able to tell his story to other young men that's out there doing the same thing he was doing and I'm quite sure many have also lost their lives doing the wrong things to people people are not playing either they work hard everyday to put food on their table and whatever else and for anyone to just feel like you can just walk up and threaten someone life. you better think twice because don't never think your going to keep getting away for all the wrong you did to innocent people


Gods Plan 🙏🏽 He’s probably has been robbing ppl all his life. ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END ONE WAY OR ANOTHA… GAME OVA!!! Sometimes you have to find that out “KARMA~WAY!”
