Female clerk shot at Greenacres bowling alley; Separate shooting also investigated

GREENACRES, Fla. - A female clerk injured in a shooting late Tuesday night at a Greenacres bowling alley is among two shootings being investigated in Palm Beach County.

Investigators said both of the shootings happened just after 11 p.m.

Detectives said a man walked into the Greenacres Bowl, located at 6126 Lake Worth Rd., right before closing time.  

The gunman went behind the counter, shot the female clerk in the leg, took cash from the register and left the scene.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokesman Eric Davis said the clerk has non-life-threatening injuries and was taken by ambulance to Delray Medical Center.
    
Second Shooting

Two people were hurt in a shooting at Royal Palm Estates on Orange Road in suburban West Palm Beach.

At 11:03 p.m., deputies responded to 5600 block of Orange Rd. for the shooting. Two victims were later located, but both gave numerous conflicting statements about what happened, said Davis.

One victim suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest and is currently in stable condition. The second victim is in critical condition after undergoing surgery for suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the chest torso.

Davis said this shooting, which is still open and ongoing, is possibly drug related.
