LAUREL, Md. - Anne Arundel County police are looking for a man who shot a Wal- Mart employee during a robbery at a Laurel store.

Police say the 28-year-old employee was shot after 4 a.m. Wednesday, but his wounds aren't life-threatening.

Police believe a suspect entered the store overnight in the 3500 block of Russett Green East, approached the employee and demanded money. The employee complied with the demand, but was shot in the parking lot after being forced outside by the gunman.

Police say the gunman fled, but authorities are investigating a possible connection between the shooting and a car that was found on fire nearby.

The suspect is described as a white man, with a dark mask, black pants, a black jacket and a gray or white hooded sweatshirt.
