A man entered the Dollar General on Stonewall Jackson Boulevard where he brandished a gun and demanded cash just before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.
Investigators are trying to identify and locate the gunman.
A clerk told deputies she saw a man wearing a dark-colored hoodie and black pants come into the store.
She said the man demanded that she open the cash register while he held a gun wrapped in a bandana, the report states.
She told the man she couldn’t open the cash register drawer, so she called for a manager.
The manager told deputies that she heard the clerk call for her. As she walked out of her office, she saw a man yelling and holding a handgun demanding money.
