RAVENEL, S.C. (WCIV) -- A locked door was enough to hold off a gunman who was trying to get into a Dollar General on Savannah Highway in Ravenel.

A spokesperson for the Charleston County Sheriff's Office says employees called 911 when the gunman started banging at the locked door around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Employees refused to open the door. The suspect took off on foot, according to officials.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5'05" - 5'06", slender build, wearing dark pants, black gloves, and a black sweatshirt. The Sheriff's Office K9 Unit responded to the scene, but was unable to track the suspect. There were no reports of injury to any of the establishment's employees.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Charleston County Sheriff's Office at 843-202-1700 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
