The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO) is currently seeking help to identify a suspect involved in an armed robbery that occurred this weekend.

The unknown black male suspect can be seen on surveillance video brandishing a semiautomatic handgun and demanding money from the store clerk of Corner Mart Chevron convenience store, at 2302 Ebenezer Road, Rockdale County, around 11:56 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15. 

The suspect left the store on foot with a store employee firing at the suspect as he fled. It’s not known if the employee made contact with the gunshots. The suspect did not appear to have a vehicle and likely fled on foot toward the Biltmore Estates area.
