A store clerk was shot during a robbery at a convenience store.
It happened just before midnight at the One-Stop Shop on Corbin Road in Jacksonville.
Police say the employee was out in front of the business when he was approached by a man who forced him back inside at gunpoint.
The gunman forced the clerk behind the counter and then shot him. The robber made off with an undisclosed amount of money and ran toward the Holiday City Mobile Home Park.
The victim was taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital and police say he's now in stable condition.
The gunman is described as a black man, with a slim build and approximately 6 feet tall. He was well dressed in a collared shirt, dark slacks or jeans and was wearing a dark, flat brimmed hat.
