Police are continuing to look for the suspect in the Sunday morning armed robbery of Ray’s Food Place in Clearlake.
When officers arrived they learned that the suspect – believed to be a white adult male wearing camouflage clothes, a ball cap and a black face mask – walked into the grocery store carrying a rifle.
The suspect ordered an employee to hand over money and then fired a single shot into the store’s ceiling. As the suspect was leaving the store, a second employee confronted the suspect and attempted unsuccessfully, to wrestle the rifle from him.
The suspect continued outside and then fired two more rounds at store windows,shattering them. Officers used two police dogs to track the suspect’s trail to a turnout area where it is believed he got into a vehicle and fled.
The suspect is believed to be a white male, approximately 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.
The amount of money stolen is being withheld.

The Sonoma Board of Supervisors this week could drastically cut the amount of medical marijuana allowed for patients outside city limits.
Tuesday , the board on will consider a proposal to get rid of the guidelines approved six years ago allowing patients to have 30 plants and three pounds of dried pot per year.
Instead, the state limit of six mature plants or 12 immature plants and eight ounces of dried pot per patient is plenty, according to a proposal by Supervisors Shirlee Zane and Valerie Brown.
Zane said they must change to stem a perception that the North Coast is a safe place to illegally cultivate marijuana.
The move has enraged some medical cannabis advocates who said the supervisors requested input from law enforcement but left patients out of the process, giving them less than a week's notice before the vote.
"It's outrageous," said Kumari Sivadas of Sonoma Alliance for Medical Marijuana. "If the ordinance is repealed, it would result in a huge waste of resources. The courts are already packed with marijuana prosecutions."
Advocates and patients said they will pack the supervisor chambers for Tuesday's meeting to argue against the new proposal.
