Police are looking for a man who fired a gun as he robbed a northeast Calgary pub early Wednesday morning.
At about 2 a.m., the man entered the Nixx Neighbourhood Pub in the 2400 block of Edmonton Trail N.E. and fired a shot into the ceiling as he ordered the bar patrons to get out of his way and lie on the floor, police said in a release.
There were about 25 people in the bar at the time.
The robber then took off with an undisclosed amount of cash, fleeing on foot, police said.
It's believed he might have injured himself as he fled.
The suspect is about five feet nine inches to six feet tall, with a muscular build and dark skin.
He was wearing a black and white bandana over his face, a grey hoodie with orange and red "Giants" lettering, black sweatpants, gloves and white shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to call police or contact Crime Stoppers.
