An Exxon gas station attendant in Bel Air was shot during an armed robbery late Saturday night, according to Harford County police.

At about 11 p.m., a suspect entered a gas station at 600 W. MacPhail Road with a black handgun and shot the attendant, police said. The suspect was last seen running away wearing a ski mask, long-sleeved shirt and shorts, and tennis shoes — all black, police said. The attendant was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where his condition is unknown.

Police remained on the scene, which is near Upper Chesapeake Medical Center and Schimunek Funeral Home, until early Sunday morning. Anyone with information about the robbery should contact (410) 638-4500.
