Gunman fires shots at north Fayette gas station

Fayette County sheriff’s deputies are looking for a black man who shot a clerk at the BP/Amoco gas station at the intersection of Ga. highways 138 and 279 around 2:15 today.

The suspect was described as 6 feet tall wearing a black coat and carrying a black handgun.

The gunman also had forced the clerk into the store bathroom and threatened the clerk, according to initial reports of the incident.

The suspect left the store on foot and was believed to be on Ga. Highway 85 headed toward Hwy. 85 and Clayton County, officials said.

A sheriff’s K-9 unit is on its way to the scene to attempt to track the suspect.

The initial report was that the clerk was grazed by the shot and was not seriously injured.

I am a soccer referee and each week I am on a soccer field almost every day. I hate seeing young men and women, sometimes as young as 12 or 13, with knee braces, casts, or on crutches.
