On Friday, December 20, 2013 at 1109 am, a black male entered Sunshine Market located at 3310 Concord, while the clerk, a 46 year old man, was stocking items by the front door. The suspect immediately displayed a rifle and shot the clerk in the abdomen. The clerk fell to the floor; then got up and walked behind the counter while the suspect was pointing the rifle at him. The clerk opened the register and attempted to hand the man the cash. The suspect put the clerk in a headlock with his left arm and began striking him in the face with his right fist. The suspect struck the clerk in the face several times before he fell to the floor. During the struggle the suspect's hat fell to the floor revealing that the suspect wore his hair braided back. While the clerk lie bleeding on the floor, the suspect quickly emptied the register and ran out of the store. The suspect is described as a black male, tall and thin, wearing a camo jacket and a hat with his hair braided back.
Witnesses said the suspect ran north toward Primrose Apartments before they lost sight of him.
