BALTIMORE - Baltimore County police said they are looking for a suspect in the early Monday morning shooting of a convenience store clerk.
According to police, a lone suspect entered the Speedy Mart in the 3800 block of Hollins Ferry Road at about 1:30, displayed a handgun and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk, police added, hesitated and the gunman, opened fire, wounding the clerk. The assailant, who police described as a black male, five-feet-nine and 160 pounds, fled the store without taking any money.
The clerk, who has not been identified by police, sustained gunshot wounds in the shoulder and thigh. He was transported to the University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock-Trauma Unit for treatment and then released.
