A York man told officers a would-be robber shot him during a struggle in York City Tuesday night.

Jason Logue was shot twice in the leg and is expected to survive his injuries, according to Lt. Troy Bankert, who supervises the city's detective bureau.

A condition for Logue, 24, of York, could not be obtained. Police said he's in stable condition.

He told officers he was in the 600 block of West King Street with his girlfriend about 10:20 p.m. when he was approached by a male who brandished a gun and demanded money, Bankert said.

"There was a struggle," the lieutenant said. "A few shots were fired."

Logue was struck by two bullets; his girlfriend was unharmed, Bankert said.

The robber fled empty-handed after the gunfire, according to Bankert.

Logue was transported to York Hospital for treatment, according to police.

Bankert said detectives must re-interview Logue and his girlfriend, in part to try to get a better description of the would-be robber.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call city detectives at (717) 849-2219, or call the city's anonymous crime tip line, (717) 849-2214. Or text a tip to "YORKTIPS" at 847411.
