(Memphis) Memphis police are looking for two masked men who robbed and shot a man early Monday morning in East Memphis.

Police say the man and a woman were ambushed while sitting in his truck at a house on Fenwick Road, on the edge of Chickasaw Gardens.

They say the man got out of the truck and gave the robbers some cash and that's when he was shot in the leg.

The shooting victim is already home from the hospital, but his family is still too shaken up to talk about what happened.

Neighbors say their quiet neighborhood doesn't feel so safe any more.

"You've got to look out for each other and this is just a lesson in that," said Dana Mansolillo.

The suspects were wearing black hoodies and blue bandanas.

They were last seen driving away in a blue or black Acura.

If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.
