MESQUITE (KRLD) - Police in Mesquite are searching for two men who robbed a convenience store on West Grubb Drive Wednesday night. One of the suspects shot and injured the store clerk during the robbery.

"One of the individuals had gone in and checked out the store. They drove away, but came back about 10 minutes later with masks on," said Sergeant Joseph Thompson. "Both individuals had handguns. They demanded money from the clerk." When the clerk failed to comply, one of the men opened fire. The clerk was struck in the hand.

The suspects drove away in a blue Toyota Matrix. Police say the vehicle had a sunroof and was also missing its front bumper. They're hoping someone will recognize the suspects or the vehicle.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to  $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest and indictment in the case. Police are urging anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at  214-373-TIPS.
