A man shot up a north Spokane grocery store during a pre-dawn robbery Thursday. No one was hurt.
The incident occurred about 2:50 a.m. at the Rosauers supermarket at 1724 W. Francis, police said.
A clerk told police a man walked into the store, picked up a package of cigarettes and brought them to a checkout stand.
As the clerk was ringing up the sale, the robber pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and demanded money, police said.
The bandit then fired two shots into the counter, grabbed some cash and ran for the door. He fired three or four rounds into the floor and several more toward the store entrance as he fled, witnesses said.
The gunman jumped into a waiting car that sped away.
The clerk said the robber was a white man in his early 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 pounds with a mustache and goatee. He was wearing dark clothing and had a bandanna on his head.
The getaway car, which police think was driven by an accomplice, was an older model dark station wagon.
Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233. , DataTimes
