Chattanooga police have released the name of the man who was shot Friday at the Murphy USA gas station near the Brainerd Road Walmart.
The victim was Leif Plunkett, 33, a clerk at the station. His wounds were not life-threatening, Chattanooga police spokesman Nathan Hartwig said in a news release.
Hartwig said Plunkett left the gas station office about 3:30 p.m. and was shot by a black male. The motive was believed to be robbery, but the assailant ran away without taking any money, Hartwig said.
A search by officers and dogs was fruitless, he said.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call the Chattanooga Police Department at 423-698-2525.
