PHOENIX (AP) -- A man who was injured in a scuffle with a clerk while allegedly trying to rob a Phoenix liquor store is facing charges including robbery.

Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes says 29-year-old Deray Darnell Hannah was released from a hospital Saturday and booked on one count each of armed robbery, prohibited possession of a firearm and first-degree burglary.

Authorities say Hannah went into Discount King Market on Wednesday with a handgun and attempted to steal computer equipment.

Police say the 49-year-old clerk grabbed Hannah's gun and the two got into a physical altercation.

The gun went off but nobody was shot.

Hannah was hospitalized with bleeding from his head and face.

The clerk was uninjured.
