WAUKEGAN, Ill. (WLS) -- Waukegan police are talking for the first time about an armed robber who opened fire inside a liquor store Sunday night.
A robber wearing a yellow mask yelled at the clerk at Big Daddy Liquors on Grand Avenue and then fired a single shot into a cooler. He got away with cash.
Police say the fact the robber fired his weapon makes their search more urgent.
"We're very concerned that there was a suspect doing armed robberies with a gun is bad enough. But the fact that there was a shot fired this really raises our concern as a community and as a law enforcement agency," Waukegan Police Cmdr. Joe Florip said.
Police want people to know that the man is armed and dangerous and anyone with information should call 911.
