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.
