BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Berkeley County investigators have identified a suspect wanted for an armed robbery. 

Deputies are searching for 18-year-old Sadiqq Amonee Burgess. 

Authorities say they believe Burgess is in the Summerville area, and is considered to be armed and dangerous.

Pringletown Quick Stop on Old Gilliard Road near Ridgeville was held up around 11 p.m. on Feb. 18.

The suspect fired the gun inside the Quick Stop and tried to fire a second time but the video shows the gun apparently malfunctioned.
