Cincinnati police are searching for a female suspect who they say fired three shots at a gas station clerk during a robbery Wednesday morning.

Police said the woman pointed a gun at a clerk and obtained an undisclosed amount of cash inside Mobil gas station off Mitchell Avenue east of Interstate 75 just before 8:30 a.m.

The clerk chased the fleeing suspect, who fired three gunshots toward the employee, according to police.

No one was hit or hurt.

The suspect ran over to a White Castle fast-food restaurant across the street, jumped into the passenger side of a waiting gold Honda driven by someone else and took off, police said.

Investigators say they know the woman's identity and are searching for her.
