WASHINGTON - D.C. police are looking for a man accused of shooting a Rite Aid employee inside a northeast Washington store.

Police say the shooting happened Sunday night at a Rite Aid in the 1400 block of Rhode Island Avenue, NE.

Commander George Kucik says the man entered the store and shot and wounded a worker without any provocation. Kucik says detectives don't know a motive and nothing appears to have been taken from the store.

Police have posted on YouTube video of an armed man entering the Rite Aid, his face concealed by some type of surgical mask.

Police consider the suspect to be armed and dangerous. They're offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to his arrest and conviction.
