Hop-In Clerk Accidentally Shot by Co-Worker

IMG_3686April 14, 2014 – Eastman

A female Store Clerk was accidentally shot in the leg tonight at the Hop-In Convenience Store by a co-worker when the co-worker dropped a hand gun on the floor, causing the gun to fire. The injured Clerk was struck in the leg by the bullet.

This comes on the heels of an armed robbery that occurred at the same store early Saturday morning. The clerks reportedly have obtained permission from the store manager to arm themselves.

The identity of the injured clerk is not known at this time, nor the extent of her injuries except that she was not seriously injured. We will report more when police reports are obtained.
