Convenience store clerk shot, hospitalized
HIALEAH GARDENS, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are searching for a man in connection to a convenience store shooting that sent a clerk to the hospital with a gunshot to the leg, Friday.
Investigators have not determined a motive for the incident because no money was taken from the Las Hermanas Cafeteria and Market located at 10115 W Okeechobee Road in Hialeah Gardens.
Police said a man in his twenties entered the store and pulled out his gun. The clerk, who was located behind the register, ran off. The suspect chased after him and fired off several shots, hitting him in the leg.
The victim was transported to Palmetto General Hospital and is expected to be OK.
Investigators said part of the incident was captured on surveillance video.
