Police said a man robbed Sunny Mart, 2906 Getty St. in Norton Shores, at gunpoint shortly after midnight. The suspect shot the clerk in the leg with a .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol before fleeing the scene on foot, police said.
The suspect was described as a black man in his 20s, and about 6 feet, 1 inch tall. He was dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt with black shorts, and had a black or blue bandana covering his face.
Police are also looking for the driver of a white conversion van that was near the area at the time of the incident. Lt. Jon Gale of the Norton Shores Police Department said it’s not clear if the van is connected with the robbery and shooting.
“We’re diligently following up with leads," Gale added.
Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Observer at 231-722-7463 or Norton Shores Police at 231-733-2691.
The armed robbery and shooting happened a little more than a month after a drive-by shooting at a Norton Shores gas station. That shooting took place at the Shell gas station on the corner of Henry Street and Sherman Boulevard on May 21.
