Police are searching for two suspects in an attempted robbery at a Duane Reade pharmacy downtown where they allegedly shot at the cashier when she refused to turn over cash.
It happened at about 11 p.m. Friday, June 15 at the pharmacy at 100 Delancey St., according to police. The suspects seen in the surveillance video approached the counter, and one of them demanded money while the other showed a gun.
The 21-year-old cashier didn't comply, and the unarmed suspect ordered the other to shoot her, police said. The armed suspect aimed at the cashier and fired a round at her, missing her.
The two men then fled the pharmacy.
The cashier was not hurt.
