> Which issue did Robin get shot by the Joker in??

The Joker shot Dick Grayson's Robin in Batman #408 in 1987.

>and why did the Joker shoot him??

The diamond necklace he'd just stolen had a history of death associated with it, and he decided to add another body to the list in the form of Robin. He failed, obviously.

>did Robin do something to him??

Got in his way, tried to stop him... The Joker's a homicidal maniac with a hatred of Robin and Batman, why wouldn't he shoot him? He'd shoot Robin just to annoy Batman, or just because it was Tuesday.
