Police are investigating the shooting early Saturday morning of a man during a robbery in the Eastwick section of West Philadelphia.

Officers shortly before 3:40 a.m. responded to the 7100 block of Lindbergh Boulevard for a report of a shooting.

There, they found a 27-year-old man, who told police two unknown black males approached him from behind and pressed a gun into his back.

He said the assailants rifled through his pockets, taking his iPhone, wallet and $70 in cash.
