The search is on for a man police say fired shots while robbing a tobacco store in Frankfort Thursday night.

Just after 10 p.m., Frankfort police say the man walked into the Discount Tobacco Depot on East Main Street, showed a gun, and demanded money from the clerk.

"Give me the money, give me the money, he shouted," said the clerk, who asked to not be identified.

He says, during the robbery, the gunman fired two shots, narrowly missing him.

"I was scared, nervous, it's something I've never experienced for," he said.

After getting an undetermined amount of cash, he says the suspect ran off.

"Just the fact that he discharged a weapon with people inside, means he is a threat to this community," said Major Fred Deaton, with Frankfort Police.

"We need to get him off the streets, and into custody, we do consider him armed and dangerous," Deaton said.

Police say the suspect is between 5'11" and 6'2", and weighs between 180 and 200 pounds.

At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a black mask that covered his mouth and nose, dark sunglasses, and white gloves. He also wore a blue sweatshirt with a hood that had a white stripe down the sleeve. Police say he had on blue jeans and tennis shoes.

Frankfort Police ask anyone with information about this crime to call them at 502-875-8523. You can also call Frankfort Crime Stoppers at 502-875-8648, they're offering a $1,000 cash reward.
