AUGUSTA, GEORGIA -- Richmond County authorities are looking for a man armed with a handgun who robbed a convenience store Saturday night and shot at the store's clerk before running out with cash.

The man entered Kim's Fast Stop, at 1959 Kissingbower Road, at about 8:30 p.m.

According to Richmond County Sheriff's Investigator Paul Godden, the suspect posed as a customer and asked the sales clerk for a cigar. When the clerk turned back around, the man was kneeling on the counter and pointing a small, semiautomatic handgun at him.

Investigator Godden said the suspect shot at the clerk but missed, jumped over the counter and grabbed the money from the cash register before running out of the store. The clerk, brandishing his own semiautomatic gun, chased the suspect and fired at him several times but also missed.

The man was last seen in a brown-colored older model GM sedan with silver-tinted windows heading west on Gordon Highway.

He is described as black, between 5 feet, 8 inches and 6 feet tall and weighing between 165-180 pounds. Investigators said that he might have gold teeth. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, white tennis shoes and a short haircut.

Anyone with information should call the Richmond County Sheriff's Office at 821-1080.
