It happened at 10:26 a.m. CDT at 1200 Columbus Parkway, investigators said.
The victim told police he was in the restroom when the gunman demanded any valuables he had before smacking him in the face with the weapon, causing it to discharge. The robber then ran behind the store.
The victim was treated at the East Alabama Medical Center. He described the robber as a black man wearing all black, possibly with gray facial hair.
