AKRON, OH (WOIO) - A Macedonia man is recovering after being shot at an Akron convenience store Sunday night.

The clerk - Surinder Nagra - was shot several times at the Far-Less Food Market on East Buchtel Avenue during a botched robbery attempt.

The 19-year-old clerk said another customer raised red flags about two males outside the store acting suspicious.

As Nagra walked towards the front door, the suspects burst in, pulled out handguns and demanded that the clerk put his hands in the air. When Nagra pulled out a handgun, the suspects fired several shots striking the victim before fleeing.

Nagra was transported to Akron City Hospital where his injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

The suspects are two black males, 16 - 20 years old. The first suspect is 5'08" - 5'09", 140 - 160 lbs. He was wearing a black baseball cap, black hooded sweatshirt and dark colored or black jeans.

The second suspect is 5'09" - 5'10", 150 - 160 lbs. He was wearing a dark colored baseball cap with a red brim, red jacket with black sleeves, blue jeans and black shoes with white soles.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Akron Police Department.
