According to authorities, a 56-year-old man left his car with the key in the ignition while parked in the intersection of 110th Street and 107th Avenue at about 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 8.

When he returned to his car, two unidentified men tried to go into the vehicle while wielding a gun and stating that they were “going to shoot him,” according to authorities.
