Masked gunman fires shots, no one injured

One shot was fired but no one injured Friday when a masked gunman tried to rob Berry Smith Sanitation.

The business owner, Berry Smith, told investigators the robbers were driving a dark blue Oldsmobile that pulled up to his business in the 1300 block of New Savannah Road around noon.

The car's passenger was holding a pistol in his hand as he got out of the car and pulled a ski mask over his face. An employee inside the business tried to slam the door shut on the approaching robber, but not before the gunman got his arm into the store and fired a shot, a report says.
