A 74-year-old store clerk was shot Tuesday morning during a robbery inside a Turkey Hill Mini Mart in Pottstown, Pa. early Tuesday morning.
The store is located at High Street and N. Park Road.
Two men entered the store at about 4:40 a.m. and demanded money orders from the clerk. One of the suspects took out a silver revolver and shot the man behind the counter twice in the leg, according to police.
The victim was flown to Reading Hospital where he was undergoing surgery. He was expected to survive.
The suspects made off with money orders and merchandise before making their escape.
Earlier in the morning (2:40 a.m.) the same two men allegedly hit up another Turkey Hill store on 1000 W Kings Highway in Coatesville, Pa.
The suspects, described as black males, were caught on surveillance tape.
One was described as dark skinned, about 6-foot, wearing a brown-color hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, white T-shirt, white sneakers and in possession of a silver handgun revolver. The second suspect was described as light skinned, about 5-foot-8 or 5-foot-9, with short hair and wearing light-colored cargo-style pants and a white T-shirt.
No arrests at this point in time.
