Police: suspect fires several shots at store clerk

Posted: Updated:

RADCLIFF, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Radcliff convenience store was left riddled with bullet holes when a man opened fire in broad daylight. 

Police say it happened early Jan. 14 at the Brook's Market on Wilson Road in Radcliff.

"What worries me is we've got a suspect out there that fired four random rounds without even thinking about it," said Bryce Shumate, with Radcliff Police. "We've got somebody that is a danger out in our community right now that we're hoping through this video that somebody recognizes."

Shumate says the attempted robbery was pretty brazen. 

"I don't remember in the last 20 years shots being fired in an attempted robbery, especially four shots going out," Shumate said.

Police don't know why the suspect fired the shots. But they suspect he may have thought the store clerk had a gun. 

"The store clerk actually picked up a can of soda in his hand and ran around the counter in an attempt to go after the suspect," Shumate said.

Shumate says for now they don't know much about the suspect, not even his race. "If you look at the video, it's hard to tell because there is a black mask wrapping around his facial area."

But there is one thing police were able to pick up from surveillance video. 

"Well you can look in the very last stance, you can see that they actually take a triangular stance to take their last shot," Shumate said. "And that somewhat looks like someone who has had some firearms training and that's kind of scary in itself."

No one was injured but police consider the suspect dangerous and want to get him off the streets. Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect should call police right away.
