Police looking for armed robber who took cash and toilet paper

Police are looking for the person who fired shots inside a South Bend Save-A-Lot Store, and then took off with cash and toilet paper.

The armed robbery happened around 12:30 on Chapin Street.

Police said the suspect, sporting a wig and disguise, took out a handgun in the check out lane and fired a round of shots.

The manager told ABC 57 News her son was working the register when the man demanded the money. The manager added the register would not open, and that's when the gunman fired a shot at the security monitor.

The suspect took the cash and ran off with the toilet paper, as well.

Police describe the gunman as a black man, about 6-feet-2-inches tall, and 120-pounds.

He was last seen wearing a green football jersey with the number ninety-three.
