NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

New details from the incident report following an armed robbery in North Charleston Sunday night say the store clerk who was robbed went after the suspect with a stapler.

The clerk told officers in the incident report that a man entered the Citgo Convenience Store in the 4600 block of Rivers Avenue and demanded money. When the clerk asked why, the suspect shot the clerk in the arm, according to the incident report. 

A witness stated the clerk went after the suspect with the stapler, and an officer saw a stapler on the ground, according to the incident report. 

Later when the clerk's statement was taken at MUSC, she advised the suspect tried to grab a register, but couldn't lift it. The clerk also stated the suspect demanded money and said "You think I'm playing, I'll shoot you in the head" according to the incident report. The clerk said the suspect tried to pull the trigger again, but the gun jammed, the report stated.

North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor says the suspect is a black male. He was wearing all black, a Dallas Cowboys Ball cap and white T shirt over his face.
