Clerk Dodges Bullet In Attempted Robbery

A store clerk working overnight managed to dodge a would-be robber's bullet, and now police are investigating the crime.

Greenville Police say the employee at the Trade Wilco on Memorial Drive near the airport was locking the door just before 11 Tuesday night, when a gunman walked up. Police say the store clerk saw the masked, hooded man pull a gun. The employee ducked as the gunman fired into the store, detectives say. The bullet missed the clerk. Police say the gunman took off running, and a K-9 was unable to track his scent. Police are investigating.

If you have information about this crime, police ask you to call the Greenville Police Department at (252) 329-4315 or Pitt Greenville Crime Stoppers (252) 758-7777.
