Family Dollar Clerk Shot During Attempted Robbery

(Memphis) A Family Dollar clerk was shot during an attempted robbery Monday evening, according to a Family Dollar corporate representative.

The woman was taken to the MED trauma unit in non-critical condition.

The Family Dollar is located at Hickory Hill and Knight Arnold.

MPD said in an email, “The suspect is described as a male Black, 17 to 20 years old, and last seen running behind the business.”

Crayola Fant used to work at this Family Dollar, and now works at another location.

She said she rushed over when she heard who was shot.

She and the corporate representative say a young man walked in, pulled a gun, and demanded cash.

He thought the clerk was taking too long, and when she yelled for the manager to help, he shot her.
