A Whitehall man told police he was robbed at 4:25 p.m. April 12 outside Whitehall Carry Out, 4227 E. Main St.

The man told police he was walking to the store to buy lottery tickets when two men asked him for change. The man said he had none and went inside the store.

After exiting, one of the men pointed a gun at him and said, "Don't get shot over change."

The victim, armed with his own gun, fought the man, reports said.

During the struggle, the victim's pistol fell from its holster, police said.

Reports said the two men took the victim's gun and his lottery tickets and fled in a vehicle.

The victim reported a woman in the car yelled, "Why did you just do that?" as the driver fled south on Elaine Avenue.
