Southfield — Police are looking for a man who wore a Halloween mask and shot a clerk in the leg during a Dollar Tree store robbery earlier this week and is believed to be connected to at least two similar robberies in Detroit.
Wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, black pants and a Halloween mask, the man entered the store at 20218 W. Eight Mile at 6:45 p.m. Monday, brandished a handgun and demanded cash from the clerk, according to a news release from Southfield police. He then shot the clerk in the leg. The clerk remains hospitalized Friday with serious injuries.
Southfield police publicized still images from surveillance footage that captured one of two recent armed robberies in Detroit. Police say the man captured on camera appears to be the same person who robbed the Southfield store.
Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call the Southfield Police Department at (248) 796-5500.
