He then went back to the store about 40 minutes later and walked directly to the counter while holding a gun, according to police. He demanded money and cigarettes then shot the clerk in the leg. He fled in the same vehicle.

The clerk was transported to a local hospital. His injuries were not considered life-threatening.
