Swedish Student Shot in Wynwood Back in Intensive Care

An international student from Sweden who was shot during an armed robbery in Wynwood is back in intensive care, according to his brother.

Frank Hammar, a student at Miami Ad School, spoke to NBC 6 from his bed at Jackson Memorial Hospital Friday as he continued his recovery from two gunshot wounds.

The 28-year-old student said he had just finished dinner with his parents at the Wynwood Diner and had sent them off with an Uber driver when two men approached him, one brandishing a weapon. Hammer gave up his phone but kept his wallet.

Hammer was struck twice in his abdomen and crawled for help.

On Sunday, NBC 6 received an e-mail from his brother, saying that Hammer had been running a high fever and was back in intensive care.  He said doctors are not yet able to determine the cause.

Police are trying to find the two men who put Hammer in the hospital. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
