An employee of the Gigante Market in Bridgeport was shot during a robbery at the store by an armed suspect still on the run.

The incident took place around 10:30 p.m., Thursday, April 18, at the market located at 966 State St., said Bridgeport Police spokesman Terron Jones.

According to Jones,  a suspect described as a tall black male wearing all black clothing including a black mask and gloves entered the market and went behind the counter, displayed a firearm, and shot the store employee in the right leg inches below the knee.

He then allegedly stole $400 from the store and fled south on Normal Street, Jones said.

The victim with non-life threatening injuries was transported to Bridgeport Hospital where he was conscious and speaking to detectives, he added.

Anyone with information is asked to report it 203-576-TIPS.
