CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A store manager in Charlotte is feeling lucky after a pane of glass stopped a bullet Wednesday morning.

Police say the suspect fire one shot inside the L.A. Insurance business at 8 a.m. on Westerly Hills Drive.

The manager at L.A. Insurance told WSOC that he was about to open the store when he saw a man standing near the business. The man then charged at him with a gun and forced his way inside.



The  suspect shoved a gun in his face and demanded that they go into the back of the business for money.

Instead, the manager made a run for it and was able to lock himself behind the protective glass of the door.

The suspect fired a shot at point blank range,  but the glass didn’t break and the manager was unharmed.

The armed robber then fled the area.

No one was injured and no arrests have been made.

The manager described the robber as a black male, approximately five feet, ten inches tall and has a thin beard. He was last seen wearing a black toboggan and wearing all dark gray.
