As the suspect was taking the money a customer walked into the store and ran once they realized what was happening, Fontenot said. As the customer fled, the suspect fired shots at the customer.

The suspect is believed to be a black male around 6 feet tall. He is wearing a dark blue hoodie, multi-colored pajama pants and dark black flip-flops with socks.

Fontenot said that the suspect is armed and dangerous. Anyone with information should call the Kinder Police Department.
