— Authorities are investigating after a man was reportedly shot by a hitchhiker in Little Rock.

Police say a 22-year-old man picked up a stranger late Saturday and gave him a ride to a convenience store.

Little Rock television station KTHV reported that police say the hitchhiker then pulled a gun and demanded money from the driver.

A police report says the driver was shot in the chest and arm, but his injuries are not life-threatening.

Authorities say surveillance video shows the hitchhiker running away after the shooting. Police say they’re still searching for the man, who faces charges of aggravated robbery and first-degree battery if apprehended.

Didn't your momma ever tell you not to pick up hitchhickers? Or was this really a "date?"

No good deed goes unpunished these days. I've been tempted to offer folks rides before. So far I have never pulled over, and this will just serve to reinforce resisting the urge.

Tragic what hapened to the victim and wishing him a full recovery. I hope the police and prosecutors successfuly hunt the shooter down and punish them to the fullest extent legally possible. Grrrrr...
