CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Investigators say a person suspected of robbing a Charleston County gas station used a squash to silence shots fired at the business.

At around 2 a.m. Sunday, deputies say they went to a James Island gas station after an alarm went off. After reviewing security video, deputies say they saw someone walk up to the building and fire two shots from a gun that had a squash on the end of it.

Deputies say the video then shows the shooter throw a cinder block through a window and take a lottery ticket case. In all, the store manager says 24 booklets of lottery tickets worth a total of $6,000 were taken.

Authorities are still investigating, and no arrests have been made.
