COLUMBIA — Two men robbed another man at gunpoint Monday night in north Columbia, Boone County Sheriff's deputies said.

A 27-year-old man was leaving his residence in the 200 block of West Havens Drive when two men, one wielding a handgun, took his cellphone and car keys, said Tom O'Sullivan, a detective with the Boone County Sheriff's Department.

The suspects ran east after the robbery, O'Sullivan said, and one of them fired his gun at the victim. There were no injuries.

Deputies were dispatched to the scene at 8:31 p.m., where they found the victim's cellphone and returned it to him in working condition.
