A man is in stable condition at a local hospital after a man shot him during a robbery at an Old Town gas station Sunday night, city police said.

Around 11:30 p.m., a man walked into a gas station along the 700 block of N. Washington St., brandished a handgun and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk complied, but after receiving the cash, the suspect shot the 41-year-old man in the torso and fled the scene, police said.

Police spokeswoman Crystal Nosal said the suspect was described as being of average height and weight, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans. Police are asking anybody with information about the incident, as well as anyone with surveillance camera technology in the neighborhood, to contact Sgt. Michael Kochis at 703-746-6285.

“You never know what people have personal security cameras, or which small business may have security cameras in the area,” Nosal said. “So if people work or live in the area and have surveillance footage we’d like to know about it.”
