MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Police Department is requesting the public's help in identifying a suspect who fired a gun several times during the course of an attempted robbery.

The incident happened on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at approximately 4:00 p.m. when an unknown male wearing a red shirt, camouflaged shorts, and armed with a black .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol entered the HP Beauty Supply Store at 3989 Eastern Boulevard in Montgomery.

Authorities released surveillance of the suspect who, once he entered the store immediately fired one round and began demanding money. 

The video shows that the suspect then fired another round, striking a glass display case.

Thankfully, there were no injuries reported and no money was taken.

Authorities want to get this person off the street and serve him with a robbery 1st degree charge. The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous and as the video shows, he has an eagerness to fire his weapon.
