Drom by Andrea Dykes, May 29, 2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are looking for two men who they say fired shots inside a south Charlotte grocery store during an armed robbery Tuesday.

Police were called to the Harris Teeter store located at 11560 Providence Road shortly after 10 p.m.

No one was shot during the robbery, but police said the suspects fired multiple shots inside the store.

A store manager was assaulted, police said after the suspects hit the employee in the back of the head. Paramedics treated them on the scene.

The suspects fled the scene on foot…running along Providence Road, police said. Police only had a vague description of the suspects.

Both were wearing clothing that concealed their identities.

Today’s robbery comes just hours after Harris Teeter offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person suspected of robbing another Harris Teeter store in Cornelius earlier this month.

Police have not said if the two robberies are related.
