A Brooklyn bodega worker was shot during an armed robbery, police say.

The incident happened on Feb. 17 inside of the Mega Food Market on Rogers Avenue around 6 p.m.

Police say two of the suspects entered the rear of the store while a third man entered the front of the building, and a fourth man waited outside.

The two men in the back of the store pulled out a gun and demanded cash from the two 54-year-old and 59-year-old employees.

Meanwhile, police say the man in the front of the store ordered everyone to the ground.

The two suspects in the back of the store stole $1,000 before shooting the 54-year-old employee in his right shoulder.
