Two women told deputies they were robbed at gunpoint by three armed men at a Dollar General in Plantersville on Monday.
The robbers threatened to the kill a store employees after she was unable to open a safe inside the store, according to an incident report released Wednesday.
The robbery was reported shortly after 6 p.m. Monday at the store on Highway 701 near Choppee Road. As of Thursday, no arrests have been made in the case.
Two employees were behind the counter when the robbers, each with their face covered, came inside the store. One of the men pointed a long gun at the female employees while the robbers demanded they open the store's safe and hand over the money.
When one employee was unable to open the safe, a robber yelled, "Kill the b****." The woman screamed, and the man with the gun fired a shot into the ceiling.
The safe was eventually opened, and the robber holding the gun took the money that was inside. The men fled the scene in a tan Nissan Altima, according to the report, and headed toward Conway on Highway 701.
The report says one of the robbers "tussled" with a female customer who was standing near the cash register when the men entered the store. The woman was not injured.
Deputies searched the northern area of Georgetown County Monday evening but did not locate the vehicle. At one point, the Sheriff's Office said officers were searching for a black Monte Carlo in connection to the robbery.
The witnesses said one of the robbers was wearing a black hoodie, black pants and red shoes. Another was wearing a Carolina Panthers hoodie with a black torso and blue sleeves. The man with the gun had on a camouflage coat, black pants and white gloves.
