 A man was shot four times in the stomach during a street robbery in Over-the-Rhine late Sunday, Cincinnati police said.

The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and underwent surgery at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, said Lt. Kim Williams, the night chief.

He was found across the street from the Shell gas station at 30 E. Liberty St. just before midnight.

Witnesses told police the man was approached by a suspect who tried to rob him after the victim left the gas station.

The suspect ran off after the shooting and remains at large.

It is not clear what, if anything, he took during the offense, Williams said.
