Investigators with the Clay County Sheriff's Office Tuesday released more details about the man they suspect of shooting an employee of an Orange Park lounge and liquor store last week.
Police released a still image from a surveillance video (seen at left) shot in the Roadhouse about 11:20 p.m. last Tuesday night, when a man grabbed a small cash box from the store and ran. They also added more detail to the description of the suspect and the vehicle believed used as a getaway car.
Long-time store employee William Lutz, 49, was shot three times during a scuffle with the man after a short foot chase. Lutz remains in fair condition.
Police say they are looking for a white man in his early 40s, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing black clothing. Investigators believe the man sustained an injury during the incident, possibly a gunshot wound.
Information from witness along with viewing of the video leads police to believe the suspect may have an unusual, slumped posture or manner of walking. The photo released doesn't show the suspect's face, but authorities say it may provide a clue to his posture or style of walking.
Police on Tuesday also released the information about the vehicle the suspect was seen driving: a black, Monte Carlo-style car.
Investigators with the Clay County Sheriff's Office ask that anyone with information about potential suspect call (904) 264-6512.
