Criminal Investigators with the Bay County Sheriff’s Office are looking for a suspect that jumped a woman as she left her place of employment on April 11, at about 6 p.m.

The victim had just entered her car when a black male approached her and fired a gun at her, shattering the driver’s side window. The bullet lodged in the seat beside her.
The victim fled her car leaving her purse behind. The suspect took her purse. Investigators believe the suspect must have thought the woman was on her way to make the deposit for that day and intended to steal the money. On that particular day another employee had already made the deposit.
The suspect is described as:
- Black male

-Last seen wearing baggy dark pants and a long sleeved dark shirt.
