WEST SIDE: Store clerk shot in Atlanta food mart robbery

ATLANTA -- Atlanta police are searching for three men after a store clerk was shot during a robbery on the city's northwest side.

Atlanta Police Capt. Van Hobbs said a man came into a food mart on Joseph E. Boone Boulevard shortly before 4 a.m. Thursday and asked the store clerk to make fresh coffee.

Police said that when the clerk left the secure area of the store, three masked men came in and forced the clerk into the office, where they stole an undetermined amount of cash.

Hobbs said the clerk was shot in the leg as the suspects were leaving the store.

He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition.
