Police say a man walked into a 76 gas station near 9th Avenue and James Street Friday night and stole a single beer. A clerk followed the shoplifter out of the station, and roughly a block later the man pulled out a gun and shot the clerk in the leg, according to police.
The shooter then got into a Chevy Caprice and sped away.
The clerk, a man in his 20s, was taken to a hospital for treatment, but his injuries aren't life threatening.
Police have not yet released a description of the shooter.
