The deal did not go as planned and the victim was forced into the suspect's vehicle, where he was pistol whipped. During the assault, the suspects fired one round at the victim, however the round missed him. He had minor injuries as a result of being pistol whipped. Detectives are working this investigation with the assistance of Gang and Narcotic Task Forces.
