On Thursday, December 6, 2018 at around 3:50 p.m., a male entered the Mr. Convenience Store (3624 Denton Hwy.) and demanded money from the clerk on duty. The suspect produced a firearm and a struggle ensued between the clerk and suspect. During this struggle, the clerk was struck with one round from the suspect’s firearm. A customer walked into the store, noticed the fight, and called 911. The customer informed arriving officers that the suspect was leaving in a red BMW.
