Clarkston store clerk shot during robbery

A DeKalb County video store clerk was in critical condition Wednesday after being shot during an overnight robbery.

The shooting happened at T&T Video on Market Street in Clarkston.

Clarkston police Chief Christine Hudson told Channel 2 Action News the 19-year-old victim, whose name has not been released, was shot in the arm, and the bullet traveled into his abdomen.

The armed gunman forced his way in just as employees were closing Tuesday night.

“He entered the store with a gun, demanding money,” Hudson told Channel 2. “He was dressed in all black, wearing a white bandana and had a black beanie cap on.”
