A man selling ice cream at a west Fort Worth apartment complex was shot Wednesday in what police said was likely a robbery attempt.

The victim was shot twice and was in critical condition at John Peter Smith Hospital, said Officer Tracy Carter, a police spokesman.

The victim was pushing an ice cream cart when he was shot, Carter said.

The man, whose name and age police did not release, was shot about 5 p.m. at the Manitoba Apartments, at Gunnison and Mojave trails.

Police said the assailants may be two men who were seen leaving the area when shots were heard. They had not announced arrests as of Thursday.
