PALM COAST, Fla. -

An armed robber fired a shot at a Flagler County clerk after she fled as he forced her to the back of the store, deputies said.

Flagler County Sheriff’s detectives have reported no one was injured in the armed robbery that occurred late Monday evening at a Palm Coast liquor store on State Road 100.

Deputies say the robber walked into Sharps Liquors on State Road 100 about 9:23 p.m., demanded all the cash from the register and a bottle of Hennessy liquor.

After giving the robber what he wanted, the clerk was ordered to the rear of the store. Instead, she ran out the front door and toward a nearby Subway sandwich shop to get help. The robber followed the clerk and fired one shot in her direction, shattering a window of the Subway.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has released video surveillance footage of the suspect involved in the robbery of Sharps Liquor store from a store nearby.

The Sheriff's Office released surveillance video and images they believe show the robber in the Winn-Dixie in the same shopping plaza. He is described as a black man in his early 30s, 5 feet 7 or 8 inches tall and weighing between 185 and 195 pounds. He was wearing a plaid shirt, dark jeans and a ball cap. The man was last seen fleeing the area on foot across the shopping plaza parking lot towards the SunTrust Bank

The suspect in this case may be the same suspect involved in a robbery of the store in October 2012.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Detective Joe Costello with the Sheriff's Office at 386-586-4802 or call Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
