A suspect fired one round during a recent armed robbery at the P&G Superette in Hoschton, according to an incident report from the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
A witness told deputies that a white man wearing a hoodie and a bandanna covering his face came into the store on Ga. Hwy. 53 on Sept. 13, around 8 p.m. The witness said the suspect told him to “stay there” and asked where the store owner was located.
The witness told the suspect where the owner was located, but the suspect went to the cash register and started removing the money, according to an incident report. The store owner then came over to the suspect and yelled, “What are you doing?” while trying to close the cash drawer. The suspect raised a gun in the air and fired one round. He warned the owner not to bother him.
