A store clerk exchanged gunfire with two robbers inside an East Ferry Street deli Thursday night.
The two suspects -- one with a handgun, the other carrying a shotgun -- entered the Nashwan Mini Mart, 169 E. Ferry, shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday and tried to rob the store, according to police reports.
Shots were fired from both guns, and the clerk -- also armed -- returned fire, police said.
Both suspects ran from the store. No employees were injured, police said.
It was unclear this morning whether anything was taken.
