December 30, 2005|By MELISSA HARRIS

A 20-year-old Elkridge man was in fair condition yesterday after he was shot in the parking lot of Bennigan's restaurant on Snowden River Parkway on Wednesday evening, according to Howard County police.

Harsh Thakkar of the 6400 block of Wesley Lane reported that two men robbed him of cash, shot him in the torso and then fled as he was getting out of his car to have dinner.

When police arrived on scene about 6:30 p.m., Thakkar was in his silver Toyota Camry.

A police spokeswoman said that detectives do not have details about the attackers because emergency responders quickly took Thakkar by ambulance to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he underwent surgery.

Police are asking anyone with information to call them at 410-313-3200.
