Ridgeland clerk, robber exchange gunfire

Ridgeland police are searching for a man who opened fire on a store clerk during an attempted armed robbery Wednesday night.

Just after dark, a man entered the North Park Package Store at 134 Dyess Road, and pointed a gun at a clerk, Ridgeland Police Department Lt. John Neal said.

The clerk then pulled out a gun and pointed it at the robber, he said.

It is unclear who shot first, but both the robber and clerk fired shots at each other, Neal said. Neither was hit.

The suspect fled the scene empty-handed in a tan sedan.
