As he was returning to his vehicle, police said, a man riding a bicycle approached him, flashed a firearm and demanded money.

Detectives said because of a language barrier Suarez-Perez didn’t understand the man’s demands, and the armed thief proceeded to shoot Suarez-Perez in the face.

The armed robber fled on his bicycle westbound on NW 95th Street.
