The image shows a black man who appears to be in his 30s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 190 pounds. He is wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and a black knit hat.

Police said on Nov. 7, the man in the photo fired a handgun at the clerk at Old Garner Road Food Mart, 1400 Garner Road, and took cash from the store. The clerk was not injured. 

Anyone who has information that might assist detectives in identify the suspect is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that help solve cases.

    gmuny33, Settle down! Implying that I'm making up crime stats based on racist views of Durham makes you sound completely ignorant. Look at a crime map (you can find this by googling "raleigh crime map" or "durham crime map"). I'm not making up numbers or attacking your city, and I'm certainly not a racist. You need to get a grip and look at the facts before posting.

    P.S. not sure why you posted this link. I obviously already read the news and I aknowleged that crime exists in everywhere, including Raleigh, in my previous post.

    88gta, at least I see now the truths are acknowledged, thanks for the reply. Per capita, per house, per whatever, you know the bashing has been very one-sided. It's all about opening eyes, and realizing, and now that some(you) have, we'll move right along. No one wants crime in their city, but it's a reality, that they all have it, whether it's one more robbery, or 3 less assaults, it's all crime. I actually like Raleigh, just not the hypocrisy I have to read so much here and listen to at others. Durham has areas of more crime as any another city, but your belief that it is throughout Durham is very false. You believe that because it's that Durham is more what race? And there are only pockets of that in Raleigh, but both beliefs are wrong. I just choose to recognize the elephant in the room. It's throughout your city too, plug in this link and other's like them and take a looksy. Just the past few days.

    gmuny33: You are the one pointing fingers. No one has ever claimed that there is no crime in raleigh. The fact that Raleigh's per capita crime rate is half the national average looks good on our behalf but it happens. The difference between crime in raleigh vs. durham (other than per capita rate) is the distribution. Look at a crime map for both cities. Raleigh's crime is isolated to certian pockets, mostly in certain residential areas. Durhams's crime however is widely distributed and not concentrated to certain areas. That's just the facts so why are you getting so worked up about this? Nobody has attacked your beloved Durham.

    Leo-nc, according to these comments and blogs on many of the stories, seems like more care than what you obviously don't. Your statement only shows more blindness to your own crime.

    I'm surprised that WRAL gave a description... a usable one at that. They must be having a good day.

    Now would raleigh police stop and assist your wife if stranded by the road in the heat or rain. Only if she was wearing a mini skirt and tank top. Would they assist you if you needed assistance with a problem neighbor. Only after thay searched you for drugs. Do your own job. Its not our place to solve your cases.

    Gmuny, who cares?

  • gmuny33 Nov 15, 2010

    Wow, more Raleigh, Wake Co. crime, how much longer will the many that leave comments of Durham, continue to overlook what is happening in their own front yard. Let's not overlook violent assault of a victim over this past wknd. My point is, stop pointing fingers, without looking at your own.
