According to police, the suspect approached two employees, a 27-year-old man and 38-year-old woman, at the customer service desk of the store.

“The suspect produced a black handgun, pointed it at the female clerk, demanded money, and fired a shot which did not strike her,” said Officer Charley Davidson, Wichita Police Department.

The suspect pointed the gun at another clerk at the store and demanded money.

“The suspect fired a second shot which grazed the shoulder of the employee,” said Davidson. “It didn’t break his skin. It barely grazed his shirt.”
