Fresno, CA (KFSN)-Winco employees are recovering after an armed robber shot her after a beer was stolen and fled.

Police have arrested at least once, but the investigation is still ongoing.

At least two young men ran out of this southeastern Fresno Winco around 3:30 am on Friday and escalated their crimes after they seemed to be over.

“This is a beer tasting, and I believe the suspect fired at an employee when he left the store,” said Fresno police lieutenant Brian Valles.

Police say the suspect was almost 50 yards away when he fired several gunshots at the employee at the exit of the store.

Two bullets hit the clerk. The clerk is currently in crisis but stable.

Investigators don’t know if the bullet hit her directly or bounced off the building.

They identified the runaway vehicle as a gray or tan SUV and found it in a McDonald’s drive-through about two miles away, arresting at least one suspect.

Officers investigated a similar crime in southeastern Fresno a few hours ago.

“Similarly, beer spilled on Tulare and First, and at least one bullet was fired while the clerk was chasing them,” said Lieutenant Valles.

Detectives want the surveillance video to help them figure out who else is involved and whether other crimes are involved.
