Canton PD Release Shhoting Video

The Canton Police Department released a surveillance video over the weekend that shows two males shooting up a convenience store on West Tusc last month.  Police are asking for the public's help to identify the males involved in the August 18th incident at the Sav-Mart, located in the 1100 block of West Tusc.  The video shows two males wearing hooded sweatshirts walking into the store.  Each of them draws a gun.  One shoots into a skill game at the store's entrance and takes cash from the broken machine.  The other man fires randomly in the direction of two customers and an employee who take cover.  If you have any details about the incident, contact Canton Police.
