The identity of the person shot has not been released.
“I don’t know if [the clerk] followed him or shot from behind the counter,” the sergeant said.
What hasn’t been made clear is whether the robber brandished the weapon or simply told the clerk he had one. Also not clear is how many shots were fired in the store.
Police and a medic unit have been dispatched to a Dollar General store on the report of a shooting.
Schloss said the investigation is continuing as detectives are working to determine whether the suspect had anyone working with him.
Schloss did not identify the clerk by name.
He said the Dollar General stores have been hit hard this summer, but he was not aware of an overall uptick in violence associated with the stores or in the area of the store. The sergeant said he was not aware of the store’s policies regarding employees being armed.
