Police say the shooting happened shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday at an E-Z Mart convenience store near Green Mountain Drive in west Little Rock. Authorities say a man entered the store and pretended to be a customer before shooting the clerk in the face.

Authorities say the man then shot the clerk in the back as the clerk tried to run out of the store. Police say the man fled after he was unable to open the cash register.

The clerk was lying on the ground outside the store when authorities arrived.

Police say the clerk was taken to a hospital and that his injuries aren't life-threatening.
