Police say a north side man was shot this morning, as he went to his mailbox to get his mail.

  1200 WOAI's Michael Main reports the man in his late 50s walked out to his mailbox in the 3400 block of West Avenue, which is near Basse Road, to check his mail.

  When he was at the mailbox, the man was approached by two thugs who jumped him and demanded his wallet.

  One of the thieves pulled a gun and opened fire.  The man was hit by one bullet and is in critical condition at the hospital.

  The wanna-be robbers got away without anything.  Police are still looking for them.
