Store Clerk Fires Shot At Would-Be Robber

An Anderson County convenience store clerk shot at a would-be robber Wednesday night.

Police said a man tried to rob the Sunoco on Highway 76 and Millwee Creek Road in the Sandy Springs area of Anderson County just before 10 p.m.

Susann Griffin with Anderson County police said the man pointed a gun at the store's clerk and demanded money.

The clerk told the man to hang on a second while he got the money together, and then pulled out a gun and fired a shot at the robber.

Police said they don't think the man was hit, but he fled the scene.

Deputies searched the scene with tracking dogs.
