The 28-year-old wrestled with the masked robber for his gun, and was shot in the leg in the struggle. 

NYPD Lieutenant Lieutenant Thomas Antonetti told MailOnline that, after he was shot and his assailant relinquished the handgun, the victim managed to bring it inside the restaurant where it was recovered by police.  

Antonetti said before the robbers fled the scene in a dark-colored SUV driven by a third party.  

The New York Post reported that the victim staggered, bleeding, out onto the sidewalk. 

‘One of the responding officers acquired a tourniquet to the shooting victim’s leg so that when EMS responded, he was already in that elevated state of care,’ Antonetti told MailOnline. 

The shooting victim was coherent enough to speak with investigators before he was taken to Cornell Hospital, where he is currently in stable condition.    

As of now, Antonetti said, there are no suspects or leads in the case. 

‘It was like a movie,’ a maintenance worker who watched the men get out of the SUV from a nearby building told the Post. ‘Two of them got out walking.’
