A 38-year-old man who is recovering from a gunshot wound to his left hand is now being investigated as a suspect in another shooting from Tuesday night, police said.

Earlier, the man told cops that he was shot during an attempted armed robbery near the East Germantown Recreation Center on Woodlawn Street around 5:45 p.m.

However, police later determined that the man's story was not true.

He was taken to the Albert Einstein Medical Center and was listed in stable condition as of 7:30 p.m., according to Chief Inspector Scott Small.
