LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. - Lawrenceburg police are looking for a man they say committed an armed robbery at an Indiana gas station.

Officials say on June 18 Gerald Kemper entered the BP service station in the 1600 block of Arch Street with a gun drawn and demanded money from the clerk. Kemper then shot the clerk in the leg, took money from the drawer and fled the scene.

The amount of money taken during the incident has not been specified.

The suspect is described as a black male, 37 years-old, 5-feet-6-inches tall, who weighs 180 pounds. Kemper has previous arrests in Hamilton County for carrying concealed weapons, aggravated burglary and forgery.

He should be considered armed and dangerous, according to police.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Lt. Combs of the Lawrenceburg Police Department at (812) 537-2282.
