Police said the store manager of the Freds Store on Sigman Road was attacked just before noon. They said the manager was leaving the store with cash to make a bank deposit when he was robbed and shot in the leg. The victim was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect ran from the scene, police said. Channel 2s Mark Winne reported K-9 units combing the Northside Village neighborhood near Sigman Road in Conyers. Across the street from the grocery store, Conyers Middle School was also locked down, according to authorities.
News Chopper 2 showed a large crime scene in the parking lot of the strip mall and evidence markers just outside the stores front entrance.
