A Stop and Shop clerk was shot at Tuesday night after chasing a man who came into the store demanding money but left with his phone.

Dougherty County Police say that a white male entered the store on Cordele Road around 8:45 demanding money and the clerk refused.

Both got into their cars and while driving down Clark Avenue, the suspect along with another white male, were shooting at the clerk.

DCP say they are looking for the two white males driving a black, two door Honda Accord with the license plate of PTY8819.
