CLEVELAND Police and FBI officials are investigating whether the shooting of a man at a Cleveland gas station was a hate crime.
The Cleveland Chapter Council on American Islamic Relations says some people were mocking 49-year-old Fazliddin Yakubov (fahz-lih-deen' yah'-koo-bahv) right before he was shot three times in the lower abdomen while pumping gas Friday night.
Yakubov is a native of Uzbekistan who is Muslim.
A hospital spokeswoman said Yakubov remained in critical condition Wednesday.
No arrests have been made.
