A 60-year-old man is recovering after being shot in the face with a BB gun after refusing to give money to armed robbers.

Goshen Police were called to the parking lot of Aldi store on County Home Road late Sunday night, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

The victim was reported getting ready to sweep the store’s parking lot when two men approached him on bicycles and demanded money, according to Goshen Police spokeswoman Tina Kingsbury.
