BPD: Masked man pepper sprays store clerk, fires shot

Jan. 19—The Brunswick Police Department is investigating a Friday morning incident at a corner grocery store in which a man with a mask pepper sprayed a clerk and fired a shot in the building.

Assistant Police Chief Angela Smith said a man entered the Downtown Grocery at the corner of Albany and Gloucester streets Friday morning wearing a mask over his face. The clerk informed him he could not wear the mask in the store. The man then pepper-sprayed the clerk and attempted to go through the door that accesses the area behind the counter.
