A man who was delivering groceries in Royal Oak last night was shot while trying to run away from a carjacking.

Police say the man was at a home on South Gainsborough near Lincoln Avenue -- just a mile or so away from the downtown -- at 9:30 p.m. when two men approached him and demanded his keys, wallet and cell phone.

The victim complied and as he was running away, the suspects shot him in the leg.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

The suspects fled the scene in the victim's gray Toyota Camry, and remain at large. Both are described as black men in their early to mid-twenties.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Royal Oak Police at 248-246-3500..
