Robber shoots second clerk in two days in Pierce County, remains at large .
A robber shot a Pierce County gas station clerk Thursday, critically injuring him, and authorities believe the gunman is the same person who shot a convenience store worker in Tacoma the day before. Thursday's shooting took place near near Portland Avenue and 104th Street East, the Pierce County Sheriff's Department reported. Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said a masked man walked into the gas station about 5:55 a.m. and demanded money. The clerk complied with the robber’s demands, but the gunman shot him just before fleeing, Troyer said.“The person did exactly what he was told to do, but he got shot anyway,” he said.
