Caught on video: Brownsville bodega worker shot by pellet gun during robbery

Posted: Updated:

Police say a suspect is wanted for robbing and shooting a bodega worker in Brownsville last month. 

Investigators say surveillance cameras inside a bodega on Church Avenue caught a man shooting and robbing a worker around 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 10.

They say it appears the suspect pointed a pellet or BB gun at the 28-year-old worker’s head and demanded money.

At one point, police say he fired the gun and hit the worker right above his eyebrow.

Authorities say the victim had a laceration above his right eyebrow, but the injury was nonfatal. He has since been released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Brownsville police.
