Police Search for Man Who Shot Clerk in Western Kansas Store

PLAINVILLE, Kan. (AP) — Law enforcement officers are searching for a man accused of shooting a convenience store clerk in Plainville, Kansas, about 25 miles north of Hays.  Kansas media outlets report a man walked into a convenience store early Sunday and pointed a gun at the clerk. Authorities say that when the clerk reached for the gun, the suspect shot him in the right hip.  The clerk was transported to Rooks County Health Center where he is in stable condition.  Police say the suspect fled west across U.S. Highway 183 and continued into a residential area. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is assisting Plainville Police and Rooks County Sheriff's Office with the search.
