The West Haven Police Department is investigating reports of an attempted robbery that occurred Thursday afternoon at an antique store.

Police said they got a 911 call reporting the incident and when they arrived at the Boston Post Road store, they said they were met by the owner who was suffering from a hand injury.

He told police that as he was opening his business he was approached by someone demanding to be let into the store. A struggle ensued and a gunshot was discharged by the suspect, striking the wall of the building.

The suspect then fled the area.

The suspect was described as a man who may have been wearing a women's wig and was driving a black Nissan.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police.
