ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a man shot in the legs during a robbery outside an Englewood residence where he was housesitting should recover from his wounds.

The shooting occurred around 4 a.m. Tuesday in the 300 block of Howland Avenue. Authorities say the assailant was wearing a ski mask and stole an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing on foot.

The victim, identified only as a 33-year-old Garfield resident, was struck by one bullet that went through both of his legs. He was being treated at a hospital, but further details on his injuries were not disclosed.

Authorities say it’s not clear if the robber targeted the victim or if it was a random incident.
