just before ten last night. The clerk gave him all the money. Watch what happens as he runs from the store. He fires two shots at a man who was just standing in the parking lot watching what was going on.

Dougherty County Police Detective Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick said  "As the robber was leaving, the witness said something to the robber, like "Hey", because it shocked him. And that's when he fired two shots at him."
