A 28-year-old man was shot in the hip as he attempted to wrestle a shotgun away from two would-be robbers in a West Oak Lane Chinese Restaurant on Aug. 31.
Surveillance footage shows the man standing in the lobby of the Golden Chinese Restaurant located at 7228 Ogontz Ave. at 12:50 a.m., when two men enter the restaurant with one of the men holding a shotgun.
