The first robbery occurred at 8:28 p.m. Wednesday at Parry Liquor at 4707 Federal Blvd. in the Ridgeview/Webster neighborhood, said San Diego police Officer Robert Heims. The male robber, who was wearing a black hoodie cinched around his face, entered the store and demanded money from the employee, Heims said.
As the employee was trying to comply, the robber fired one round toward him but he was not hurt, Heims said.
The robber took an undisclosed amount of money and left the store.
The second robbery happened about five minutes later in the same neighborhood at Par Liquor at 5055 Federal Blvd., where the robber walked in holding a gun down by his side, Heims said. He approached the employee and pointed the gun and demanded money, the officer said.
After he got the money, the robber fired one round into the wall next to the employee and exited the store, then headed westbound on Federal, Heims said. The employee was not hurt.
