Convenience store worker who brought gun to work for protection unintentionally shoots co-worker

The Hop-In Convenience store in Eastman, Georgia was the target of an armed robbery Saturday morning. According to reports, a masked male entered the store with a handgun and demanded money.  The clerk on duty gave him money and the suspect fled.

The next day, after obtaining permission from the store manager, one of the clerks brought a handgun to work for protection.  While handling the gun, the clerk unintentionally dropped the gun on the floor.  When the handgun hit the floor it discharged.  The bullet hit a female store clerk in the leg.

Police did not release the name of the injured clerk but did say that her injury was not life-threatening.
