PHOENIX - A Phoenix convenience store clerk is hospitalized after being shot during an overnight robbery.
Police said a man entered an AM/PM near 23rd Avenue and Indian School road and walked out with beer and food without paying.
An hour later, the same man walked back into the store. This time he was armed with a gun and demanded cigarettes and money, according to police.
The man walked out, but did shoot the clerk in the leg.
The clerk was transported to a hospital in stable condition.
Police said the suspect, in his attempt to get away, backed into a pair of large concrete pillars. His vehicle should show signs of damage in the back.
Authorities are now reviewing surveillance tape for clues.
