One man is shot while coming to the aid of his mother. It happened at the El Compadre Mexican Restaurant on Kings Highway Saturday night.

Police say it happened just past 11pm when a woman was walking out of the restaurant, but she was approached by two men who tried to rob her. That's when her son intervened and was shot at least twice.

Here is video shot by a Timmy Lane near the scene of the shooting:

One person close to the family says the victim was shot twice in the chest and is gravely wounded. He was rushed to University Health for treatment.
