Police said a man fired gunshots during an attempted robbery at a Salem store last week.
Salem police Lt. Steve Birr said the man walked into Salem Market at 3390 Center Street Northeast at about 10 p.m. Friday. He showed a handgun and demanded money, police said.
When the clerk refused, the gunman fired several shots before fleeing, according to police.
No one was injured.
Paramjit Sighn, the clerk, said he believed the gun was fake and was surprised by the gunfire.
Officers described the man as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored baseball cap, a dark-colored bandanna over his face, a black shirt, black shin-length shorts and black athletic shoes.
Birr said a white sedan was parked directly in front of the store during the robbery.
A woman remained in the driver's seat while her female passenger shopped in the store. The two drove away before police arrived. Birr said officers don't believe the pair is connected to the robbery, but would like to speak with them.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 503-588-6050.
