Police in Independence, Mo., are looking for a man who shot an employee while robbing an insurance office.

Police spokesman Tom Gentry says the shooting occurred in the afternoon on Aug. 20 at the Dingeldein Insurance Group building.

He says the man brandished a gun and demanded money. The female employee was shot after she didn’t comply with the demand.

The Independence Examiner reports the woman was taken to a hospital but her injuries were not life-threatening.

Police said the suspect is a black male in his 40s or 50s, about six feet tall, with a speech impediment. He wore a baseball cap, sunglasses, khaki pants and a dark blue shirt with the word “ALLERGEN” on the front.
