A dollar store clerk was shot during an attempted robbery Monday in Southfield, police said.
A masked man entered a Dollar Tree in the 20200 block of Eight Mile with a handgun and demanded money from the clerk, police said. At some point during the robbery attempt, he shot the clerk before fleeing across the street.
The clerk was treated at the scene by Southfield officers before the fire department took him to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery for his gunshot wound, police said.
It is unclear if the man was able to recover any money in the incident.
The man was wearing a black zip-up hoodie and khaki pants and may have been picked up by others in a maroon SUV.
