ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Police have identified the victim of Thursday's armed robbery, and now have descriptions of the suspects.

It happened around 10 at the Food Mart in the 1200 block of Dawson Road.

During the robbery, Somansh Malik was shot in his right leg above his knee.

Malik was transported to Phoebe Main for treatment, but has been released.

An unknown amount of money was taken from two cash registers, a safe and from Malik.

Police said they don't know they identities of the two suspects, but they reviewed surveillance footage and have descriptions.

They said they're looking for two black males, both about 6 feet tall and slender build. They wear wearing all black with their faces covered when they entered the store.

A witness said the suspects left the scene in what looked like a dark grey or black older model Chevrolet Lumnina or Malibu.

"We at the Albany Police Department are very concerned anytime any clerk or witness is injured.  Naturally we have stepped up our patrol.  So yes sir, we are very concerned by the violence inside these robberies," said Lt. Keithen Hall, APD.

The Food Mart owner say he thinks these robbers were the same ones who shot another clerk at a convenience store just a mile away.

Police say they are still investigating to determine if the two shootings are connected.

If you have any information on either of these crimes, call Crime Stoppers at 436-TIPS.

The BP owner is offering a two thousand dollar reward for information on his armed robbery.
