HOUSTON (AP) - Police are investigating the shooting and attempted robbery of a Muslim man walking to prayer services at a Houston mosque.

KTRK-TV reports that the man was walking to the Madrasah Islamiah mosque at about 5:30 a.m. Sunday when three people approached him. One of the people shot him.

The man was able to make it to the entrance of the mosque, where he gave someone his phone and said to call 911.

Police say there's no current evidence the man was attacked due to his religion.
