Charleston County sheriff's deputies are searching for an unidentified man who wielded a shotgun in an armed robbery at a Domino's Pizza restaurant Tuesday night.
Sheriff's deputies were called around 8:20 p.m. to the restaurant at 1041 Folly Road concerning the robbery, Maj. Eric Watson said.
Witnesses reported that a man entered the business, pulled out a shotgun and demanded money from the restaurant's clerk. Watson said the robber opened a cash drawer and stole around $50.
The man robbed another person of $30 in the parking lot as he fled the restaurant, Watson said. He then ran out of sight behind a nearby BB&T bank.
Sheriff's deputies utilized a K-9 unit to search for the man, but Watson said authorities were unable to locate him on Tuesday.
The suspect is described as a black man, between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a stocky build, wearing an olive jump suit, a black ski mask and a ball cap.
Anyone with information on the case can call the Sheriff's Office at 202-1700 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
