Motel clerk shot in chest during robbery

Posted: Updated:

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -- Police say a gunman shot a clerk working at a western Indiana motel during an attempted robbery.

The shooting happened Monday night at the Royal Inn on the north side of Terre Haute. Assistant Police Chief Shawn Keen tells the Tribune-Star that the gunman demanded money and shot the clerk in the chest.

Keen says the gunman then ran off without getting any money.

The wounded clerk was taken by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital, but information on his condition wasn't immediately released.

Keen says investigators hope to use surveillance video from the motel to identify the gunman.
