Valdosta--The lights at the Chevron station at the North Patterson Street, and West Force Street intersection in Valdosta are out, the doors, locked.

On Friday a 63-year-old clerk at this station was shot in the abdomen. The victim of an armed robbery.

"I worked a little bit down the road, and I come to the store pretty regularly. I've noticed him before I didn't know his name or anything." Said Brait McDonald a frequent customer.

Regular Customers who showed up at the pumps left after seeing a sign saying the station was closed, offering little explanation as to why the store was not open.

The robber entered the store demanding money and wheedling a gun. With both the clerk, his son and grandson looking on. According to reports the gunman shot the clerk, leaving without any money.

"It's a real shocker man, it's appalling that something like that would happen in the city especially right out here on the main street." Said Brait McDonald

The injured clerk was rushed to South Georgia Medical Center Where at last report he was in stable condition recovering from his injuries.

When that clerk was shot the bullet lodged in his hip but he is expected to be OK.

Police are still looking for the robber who was caught on the store's security camera. The person who robbed that store is facing aggravated assault and armed robbery charges.
