Two men robbed, shot by thieves in Brockton

Two men were robbed in Brockton Monday night — and were then shot, Brockton police said today.

The victims, who are 20 and 26 years old, were walking down Brook Street at 11:53 p.m. when two other men got out of a parked vehicle with handguns, said Brockton Police Lieutenant Kenneth LeGrice.

The suspects asked the men if they had marijuana, then robbed them of their personal belongings, including their cellphones, LeGrice said.

After the robbery, the suspects shot the victims, police said.

The 20-year-old was shot in the ankle and the 26-year-old was shot in the leg in front of 60 Brook St.

LeGrice said it appeared the shooting was not intended to be fatal. The men were taken to hospitals for treatment of wounds that were not life-threatening.

LeGrice said police are unsure if any of the men involved are affiliated with a gang.

The incident is under investigation.
