A medical marijuana store worker was recovering Sunday after being shot in the leg while trying to fight off three robbers.

The shooting was reported at 9:35 p.m. Saturday at the medical marijuana dispensary  at 5411 South Vermont Ave., said Sgt. Rick Rodgers of the Los Angeles Police Department’s 77th Street Station.

Three men were “posing as customers when a fight ensued and they shot the employee one time in the leg,” Rodgers said.

The suspects took two handguns and some money, he said.

The victim was taken to a hospital where his vital signs were stable, Rodgers said. No further details were immediately available.
