A clerk at the 7-Eleven convenience store at 3023 Duke Street was shot in the leg in a robbery early this morning.
At around 2 a.m., a man dressed in black wearing a black mask went into the store, displayed a handgun and walked behind the counter, according to staff. The suspect reportedly shot into the floor behind the counter and the bullet ricocheted and hit the clerk in the leg.
The clerk was “seriously injured with non-life threatening injuries,” APD tweeted.
Police were dispatched to the scene after a report of the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash from the register.
The store is located across the street from Bishop Ireton High School and a block away from the Alexandria Commons Shopping Center.
No arrests have been made in connection to this incident. Anyone with information can call the police department’s non-emergency line at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
