Authorities have released two surveillance images after a cashier at a west Little Rock gas station was shot during a robbery on Wednesday night.

A spokesman for the Little Rock Police Department said the photos show the suspected gunman and a vehicle he was believed to have used.

The shooting happened shortly after 7 p.m. at the Shell Station at 16900 Cantrell Road, which is between Taylor Loop Road and Chenal Parkway.

The victim, 21-year-old Dillon Reddick, told investigators that a man brought three beers to the register and also asked for cigarettes and lottery tickets, though the clerk didn't put them on the counter "because the suspect was acting suspicious," according to a police report.

The man reportedly then produced a gun, pointed it at Reddick and demanded he open the register.

"Reddick said he did not do anything but stare at the suspect," police wrote, noting the gunman pulled the trigger twice but the gun didn't fire. "[Reddick] said the suspect pulled the trigger a third time and he heard a loud bang and felt sharp pain his right hip and he fell to the floor."

Reddick was initially said to be in critical condition. A police spokesman said Reddick was "alert and awake" at the hospital on Thursday.

The gunman, who left with beer, chips and cigarettes, is described as a black man who stands about 6 feet tall. He was wearing a black ball cap, a black T-shirt with white stripes and black pants.

No arrests have been made.

    Shell should have already put out at 50k reward for this jerk.

    With that photo and description someone obviously knows who this person is.

    But yeah, it will probably take 50K for someone to come forward. That's what it usually takes for this demographic to come forward in cases like killing kids in their car seats, homes, etc. He's probably down the road at the north side of Chenal/ 10 in those ghetto apartments.

    I guess, in hindsight, the clerk should have opened the register.

    Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and other Democratic Leaders say "More gun laws would have prevented this!"

    CONSERVATIVE, thank you for the Facts that are rarely exposed. The problem as I see it is the BS Catch & Release Criminal System we have coupled with the legislative mentality that IF a prison holds 300 people and 10 more violent criminals are arrested, THEREFORE you Must release 10 existing that have Come to Jesus and Converted, RATHER THAN just build another damn Prison that holds 500!!

    In my younger years I lived in Dallas Tx. It became a regular thing to rob 7-11 stores and kill the clerk to eliminate witnessed!! 7-11 and other convenience stores started "the shotgun squad"!! They hired off duty policemen and placed them behind 2 way MIRROR Door! Clerks were told to instantly drop to the floor when a robber started to hold them up. They would do the rest!! They popped out and blew the robber away with the shotgun! After 20 or so robbers were killed all around Dallas... Robberies dropped to almost a stand still. Bad people FEAR DEATH!!!
    Confront them with that threat!!!

    The usual 13-90 suspects. Sheriff Tommy Robinson had a "shotgun squad" back in the '80's and I remember it being highly effective.

    Suspect is wearing a black hat with”1860” on it. Ok that’s not the suspect in the picture because best I can tell his hat says “1326” on it.
