Shots were fired during a robbery of a Columbus liquor store Friday.
Around 7 p.m., police were called to Fork’s Party Shop at 925 Fort Benning Road. Witnesses said a man with a handgun robbed the business and shot at or near the owner while inside the store, said Police Lt. Lynn Joiner.
No one was injured. Besides the owner, there was one employee in the business during the holdup, but that worker was in another part of the store and was not shot at, Joiner said.
The gunman ran out the door with an undisclosed amount of money. He is described as a clean shaven black man with a light complexion, about 25 years old, standing 6 feet to 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He wore khaki pants and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
