DENVER, Colo. -- A store clerk was shot at close range, and it was all caught on surveillance camera video.

Police say two suspects walked into Paymon's Mini-Mart at E. 11th Ave. and Yosemite St. a little before 8:30 Thursday night and demanded that the clerk open the cash register.

When he didn't respond right away, one of the suspects points the gun at his arm and fires at close range.

The clerk tries to jump out of the way, but the bullet grazed his shoulder.

The robbers then cleared out the register and fired two more shots at customers, missing both time, before taking off.

They were able to get away. Investigators say the pair may be connected to a string of other armed robberies in metro Denver.
