A security guard inside the store saw the man brandishing a gun and tried to shoot him. The security guard’s shot missed the gunman and struck the 57-year-old employee, police said.
Henderson police are searching for the suspected gunman, who ran from the scene without taking jewelry or cash. The robbery suspect is described as a black man 5 foot 6 to 5 foot 10, weighing about 140 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red-and-black hoodie, black pants, a black mask and a dark-colored hat or beanie.
Henderson police said the robbery suspect will face murder charges because the woman was killed during a robbery or attempted robbery. The security guard will not face charges in connection with the accidental shooting, Henderson police spokeswoman Michelle French said Sunday.
