    Police said the guard had exited the armored vehicle and was waiting to be buzzed into the business when an armed man in a ski mask walked up and grabbed the bag of money. 

    As the man was running away, the guard fired three shots.  The robber dropped to the ground, then got back up and continued running toward a waiting getaway car (pictured, above).

    There was no blood found at the scene, so investigators aren't sure if the robber is wounded.

    No other information is known at this time.
