(WMC-TV) - Just after 3 o'clock Tuesday morning a man was shot outside a popular Cooper-Young restaurant and the entire scene was caught by surveillance cameras.

Dustin Schilds and Alex Pinkington were returning to their car when they were approached by three other men in the parking lot.

A disagreement ensued as a nearby surveillance camera rolled, even capturing the scene as one of the men pulled a gun on Schilds and repeatedly demanded money from him in a violent, attempted armed robbery.

Schilds repeatedly refused and was eventually shot once in the hip. However, that didn't keep him from trying to chase down the suspects.

Shot and bleeding, but unfazed and apparently unfrightened, Schilds can be seen on the surveillance tape advancing on the shooter and his two buddies. The three men were able to get away. They jumped in a large, dark-colored SUV and sped away.

Schilds was taken to the MED but has since been released.

The robbers got away with nothing, but police are searching for four men whose capture Will help bring more peace of mind to a nightspot and neighborhood already known for laid back vibes.
