SEDAMSVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

One employee was shot and a second was hit over the head in a robbery at Speedway in Sedamsville Thursday morning, Cincinnati police said.

A man armed with a gun entered the gas station and convenience store off River Road around 3:40 a.m. and demanded cash, police said.

The suspect shot one employee in the leg and hit the other over the head, according to police. The suspect shot at several other people in the store, but none were injured.

The employee who was shot appeared to be awake as he left the store on River Road in an ambulance and was taken to a hospital, a FOX19 NOW news crew on scene observed.

A male suspect armed with a gun was seen running away from the store, police confirmed.

Police say the suspect is a black man of unknown age, 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. He has black hair in cornrows or short braids and medium complexion. He was wearing a black hoodie, black and blue jeans, a white shirt with a design pulled over his face, black and white sneakers and white and gray gloves.

He was armed with a silver handgun.

Officers searched the area on River Road down to Fairbanks Avenue and brought a K-9 out to join the manhunt. But they lost track of him in the 600 block of Delhi Avenue.

FOX19 NOW will remain on the scene and continue to update this story as information develops.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
